Intercités de Nuit arriving in Briançon after its journey from Paris

Intercités de Nuit is a brand name used by France’s national railway company, SNCF, to denote overnight passenger rail services in France. It was known as Corail Lunéa[1] before 2009 and as Lunéa[2] from 2010-2012.

Between 2013 and 2017, most services were cancelled due to budget cuts. Only four routes, from Paris to Briançon, Albi, Latour de Carol and Nice, were kept.[3][4]

The brand has since been reintegrated into the main Intercités network.
