A short history
Orléans station (actually Gare d'Austerlitz) is located at the left bank of la Seine. Its name refers to Paris-Orléans company. It was one of the main railroad companies that was operating the south and south-western rail lines. In 1840, the first quay was built in the same place as it is nowadays. After many extensions to the railway network, the Orléans station became Gare d'Austerlitz, referring to the name of the district.
