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).
