The Orient Express is a train route travelling through western Europe. It has two lines, one which travels between Paris and Istanbul via Munich, Vienna, Budapest and Bucharest, and another which travels between Paris and Sofia via Venice and Belgrade (although passengers cannot alight at Belgrade).

Aboard the Istanbul line, Passepartout can meet the young composer, Herr Danzig, heading to Vienna for a concert, as well as foreign correspondent Henri de Blowitz.

On the first play-through, the Orient Express only travels from Paris to Vienna via Munich. The first play-through will need to be completed for the changes to the Orient Express to take place. During the second play-through, the Orient Express will extend its line to Budapest, and on the third play-through the line will stretch the full distance, from Paris to Istanbul.
