There is also a metro station. The Gare Montparnasse became famous for the derailment on 22 October 1895 of the Granville–Paris Express, which overran the buffer stop.
The station of Paris montparnasse was opened in 1840 as Gare de l'Ouest, later being renamed (see Paris montparnasse map). A second station was built between 1848 and 1852. On 25 August 1944, the German military governor of Paris, General von Choltitz, surrendered his garrison to the French General Philippe Leclerc at the old station, after disobeying Adolf Hitler direct order to destroy the city (see Liberation of Paris).
