The gare de Saint-Étienne-Châteaucreux is the main railway station in the town of Saint-Étienne. The station is situated in Châteaucreux, a little outside the centre of Saint-Étienne. The station is linked to the town centre by the town's second tramway line. It is situated at a junction of railway lines: Moret–Lyon (via Nevers and Roanne), and lines to Clermont-Ferrand and Le Puy-en-Velay.

History[edit]

Châteaucreux was built in 1855 in classical style by architect Joseph-Antoine Bouvard for the PLM. The building is a sculpted metal structure filed with coloured bricks. It was built this way due to the subsidence of the ground. The station's passenger hall has kept its original features.
