On our vacation, unplugged from Internet search engines, I wrote down questions that arose in conversation to look up later online. One of them was what was/is the route of the Orient Express?

The story of the Orient Express, descendant of that first Express d'Orient that left Paris in 1883.  According to this site, the pedigree of this train is more genuine than either of the two tourist trains of restored vintage claiming to be the Orient Express, beautiful though they are.
