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 show-
case 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 inaugu-
ration 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.
