The Gare de Roanne is situated at the kilometric markers 420/571 of the Lyon-Perrache–Moret-Veneux-les-Sablon line, between the stations at Saint-Germain-Lespinasse and Le Coteau.


In June 1858, the railroad arrived in Roanne from Saint-Germain-des-Fossés, leading to the construction of the station. Since December 9, 2007, the station has had a regular service road like the entire TER Rhône-Alpes network. Benefiting from the building of the multiplex and of the bus station, plans were made for a great refurbishment between June and December 2008. On June 7, 2008, the renovation was commenced a century and a half after the station came into service. A new footbridge was built to link the station with the new bus station that was put into service in July 2008, and by 2009 the entire railway station had been renovated. The architect found his inspiration from the Gare de Saint-Étienne-Châteaucreux or from Vienna and Valencia.

On August 24, 2010, Roanne station became the first one in France to feature a day nursery for the travelers. It is situated in the old luggage room, 150 square meters in size, and is open Monday to Friday, from 7 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
