Orient Express

Orient Express

The Orient Express was the name of a long-distance passenger train service 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.

The Seven Stars in Kyushu is a deluxe sleeping-car-excursion train which was ordered by Kyushu Railway Company (JR-Kyushu).
It is scheduled to use on services from October 2013. The name of the train is derived from the seven prefectures of Kyushu,
and the fact that the train will be made up of seven cars.

All vehicles are non-smoking. This is the first Japanese sleeper-train which prohibits smoking inside of the train car.
