created in 1883
by Compagnie Internationale des Wagons-Lits (CIWL) .There are five or more
Orient-Express companies and courses.

The route and rolling stock of the Orient Express changed many times. Several
routes in the past concurrently
used the Orient Express name, or slight variants there of. Although the
original Orient Express was simply
a normal international railway service, the name has become synonymous
with intrigue and luxury travel.
The two city names most prominently associated with the Orient Express
are Paris and Istanbul, the first
endpoints of the time-tabled service. The Orient Express was a showcase
of luxury and comfort in a time when
traveling was still rough and dangerous. CIWL soon developed a dense network
of luxury trains all over Europe.
In 1977, the Orient Express stopped serving Istanbul. Its immediate successor,
through overnight service from
Paris to Vienna, ran for the last time from Paris in June, 2007. After
this, the route, still called the Orient Express,
was shortened to start from Strasbourg instead, occasioned by the inauguration
of the LGV Est which affords
much shorter travel times from Paris to Strasbourg. The new curtailed service
left Strasbourg at 22:20 daily,
shortly after the arrival of a TGV from Paris.
In December 2009, the Orient Express ceased to operate, and the route disappeared
from European railway
timetables, reportedly a "victim of high-speed trains and cut-rate
airlines." The Venice-Simplon Orient Express
train, a private venture by Orient-Express Hotels Ltd. using original CIWL
carriages from the 1920s and 1930s,
continues to run from London to Venice and to other destinations in Europe,
including the first route from Paris
to Istanbul. In March 2014 Orient-Express Hotels Ltd. was renamed Belmond.
