Company History: The Compagnie des Chemins de fer de Paris à Lyon et à la Méditerranée, often referred to as Paris-Lyon-Méditerranée and abbreviated to PLM, was an early French railway company that operated chiefly in the south-east of France, with a main line which connected Paris to the Côte d'Azur by way of Dijon, Lyon, and Marseille.

The main station of the PLM in Paris was Gare de Lyon.

On 1 January 1938, the PLM was nationalised, as were the other main railway companies, to become part of the Société nationale des chemins de fer français (SNCF).

Brief History:
France is one of Europe’s largest countries. It is bordered by six countries other nations: Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg to the northeast, Switzerland and Italy to the southeast and Spain to the southwest. The United Kingdom borders France via the English Channel. The country is considered to be the gateway to Europe as there are several large international airports (two of these can be found in Paris), ferry terminals and the French rail service.

In 486, Frankish tribes unified under Merovingian kingship. In 843, Western Francia was established from the division of the Carolingian Empire. In 1789, the French monarchy was overthrown, and in 1792, the First French Republic was founded. In 1958, the Fifth French Republic was established.
