Goal: Nickel Plate Express is a nonprofit founded in northern Hamilton County in 2017. Our goal is to preserve the rich railroad history of surrounding communities through educational and entertainment rail programs. Nickel Plate Express also aims to spur economic growth and increase tourism traffic to the northern portion of Hamilton County— specifically Cicero, Arcadia and Atlanta.

2018 Economic Impact: Nickel Plate Express hosted 10,000 passengers and created 23 jobs in the local community. Additionally, we spent $45,000 at Hamilton County businesses!
