What’s it like to ride the Nickel Plate Express?

Here’s what our passengers have to say:

“Wonderful experience on Uncorked Express. We had so much fun. We definitely will be looking forward to another excursion.”— Amy Bair

“The experience of riding the train is unforgettable. Love it!!” – Michael Baker

“We did the wine sampling trip today. It was great with individual cheese trays and the train crew was friendly and just great. We did the Veterans Day ride last November. We drive over and hour to get there. Worth the trip!”— Nancy Welker

“It’s railroading at it’s best! Try it, you’ll like it!” – Kelly Collins

“Wonderful experience. Was our first time on the train. We did the breakfast ride. Food was very good. Highly recommend!”— Sherry L. McNeely Day

“What a wonderful family experience!! Our 6 year old loved everything about the train! The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and willing to take all on tours of the whole train. This is a must do for any age!” –Leeanne Etchison

“Awesome Awesome Awesome !!!!” – Angela Reynolds

Private Events:

“I booked a private party on the Nickel Plate’s gorgeous Dining Car for the International Wine & Food Society.  We had 31 guests, a catered dinner and 10 different wines available for our guests.  The entire Nickel Plate team did a stellar job, from helping me plan the event through seamlessly serving the multiple courses and multiple wines throughout our two hour train ride.  It was a ballet of servers on a swaying train without a drop spilled!”

 T.J. Cole, President of the IW&S Indianapolis Chapter
