The VSOE was launched by an American-British entrepreneur in 1982. The EuroNight Orient Express used modern cars and ran at night between Paris, Vienna, and Budapest but was discontinued in 2009. Over 125 years after its inception, the reign of the original Orient Express was officially over. British journalist Robin McKie was present at one of the train’s final arrivals in Vienna.
