Orleans rail station is a modern structure in the centre of town . The train from Paris is from Gare Austerlitz and takes one hour. Example 13-27 arrive Orleans 14-32. From this station i travelled on to Bordeaux, with a change at St Pierre. There is another station in the suburbs.Gare des Aubrais for long distance trains . .The Americans bombed Orleans rail station in 1944 liberating the city in the war,so todays structure must replace the replacment. ! Trains times can be found on the SNCF site or best on Bahn.de
Orléans is served by two main railway station: the central Gare d'Orléans and the Gare des Aubrais-Orléans, in the northern suburbs. Most long distance trains only stop at the Les Aubrais-Orléans station, which offers connections to Paris, Lille, Tours, Brive-la-Gaillarde, Nevers and several regional destinations.

High-Speed train (TGV) is connecting Paris to Orleans several times a day.
From Orleans, you may visit the valley by bus or even by train. The French railways system is quite efficient, although regionalised, so that timetables are more difficult to be found whenever you have to travel across the regional borders.
Train from Gare d'Austerlitz...
Train from Gare d'Austerlitz in Paris to Orleans. They run about 1 per hour, often with a change at a nearby station to Orleans - I think Orleans station is a 'dead-end'.
On foot - sights within walking distance.
By car or bus.
By electrical train for example. This train stops on main points in the city like the Main Square or City Hall. While sitting in it you can watch the city.
