Chemin de Fer de l'Est

The Compagnie des chemins de fer de l'Est (CF de l'Est), often referred to simply as the Est company, was an early French railway company. The company was formed in 1853 by fusion from Compagnie de Paris à Strasbourg, operating the Paris-Strasbourg line, and Compagnie du chemin de fer de Montereau à Troyes. In 1854 company absorbed Compagnie de Strasbourg à Bale and in 1863 the railway network of Ardennes.

In 1938 it became part of the majority state-owned Société Nationale des Chemins de fer Français (SNCF).
