Local tourism train offering St. Patrick’s Day celebration ride

ATLANTA, Ind. (WISH) — Nickel Plate Express is bringing in St. Patrick’s Day with the Irish Express Saturday.

The Irish Express is an hour and a half train ride complete with live music, food and a beer tasting experience.

The St. Patty’s Day train ride will feature beer from Indianapolis-based brewery Sun King Brewing Company.

“Sun King’s beer is second to none and their support of local nonprofits is admirable. I think celebrating St. Patrick’s Day aboard the train will be a truly special way to spend the holiday weekend,” said Nickel Plate Express executive director, Dea Holt.

The hour and a half excursion will feature live Irish folk music from Hamilton County musician John Gilmore and several bagpipe jigs from the multi-talented engineers of Nickel Plate Express.
