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).
