The history of the railway in the Principality began in 1861 when Napoleon III, keen to develop a significant railway system in France, signed an agreement with Prince Charles III on extending the Paris–Lyon–Mediterranean line to Menton via the Principality. Work began in 1864, and the railway station in Monaco welcomed its first train on 19 November 1868. The arrival of the railway in Monaco contributed to the country’s extraordinary economic growth.
