Company History: The Compagnie du chemin de fer du Nord or CF du Nord, (Northern Railway Company) often referred to simply as the Nord company, was a rail transport company created in September 1845, in Paris, France. A royal ordnance dated 10 September 1845 granted exploitation of the railway from Paris to Lille and Valenciennes, branch lines to Dunkirk and Calais.

The main station of the Nord in Paris was Gare du Nord.

On 1 January 1938, the Nord was nationalised, as were the other main railway companies, to become part of the Société nationale des chemins de fer français (SNCF).

Brief History:
France is one of Europe’s largest countries. It is bordered by six countries other nations: Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg to the northeast, Switzerland and Italy to the southeast and Spain to the southwest. The United Kingdom borders France via the English Channel. The country is considered to be the gateway to Europe as there are several large international airports (two of these can be found in Paris), ferry terminals and the French rail service.

In 486, Frankish tribes unified under Merovingian kingship. In 843, Western Francia was established from the division of the Carolingian Empire. In 1789, the French monarchy was overthrown, and in 1792, the First French Republic was founded. In 1958, the Fifth French Republic was established.
