All aboard the Nickel Plate Express train for a Ghost Tour

ATLANTA, Ind. (WISH) — Halloween is just a couple of weeks away but a couple of groups in Hamilton County are already in the spirit.

This Saturday the Nickel Plate Express train will kick off their Ghost Tour.

The train debuted in September and is a 24-mile round trip from Atlanta to Noblesville.

The Ghost Tour will feature a ghost story based out of Noblesville and the final stop will be a tour of the historic Roads Hotel, which is said to be haunted.

The hotel was built in 1893 and has served as a hotel, brothel, and supposedly served as a hideout for American Gangster John Dillinger. The hotel now serves as a place for people interested in paranormal activity and costs about $50 per night to stay.

Mike Couch is the owner of the historic hotel. His charity foundation Lost Limbs Foundation bought the building in August 2017.

The mission of the foundation is to help families of amputee children with medical and prosthetic assistance. The money raised from the hotel goes to help the foundation and keep the hotel available to the public.
