The Nickel Plate Road Historical & Technical Society, Inc. (NKPHTS) is one of the oldest railroad historical organizations in the country. The Society was founded in 1966 for the purpose of obtaining, preserving, and disseminating information and material related to the New York, Chicago & St. Louis Railroad Company, commonly known as the Nickel Plate Road (NKP), and its predecessor, constituent, and affiliated railroads. Today we are an organization of over 800 members including authors, historians, photographers, railroad employees and officials, model railroaders, and railfans of all interests. The Society provides each member with the quarterly Nickel Plate Road Magazine and two eZines, the Nickel Plate Road Modeler's Notebook, now available to the public, and the monthly NKPHTS E-List Newsletter. We publish an annual calendar, hold an annual convention, and support NKP preservation projects. Please join us in celebrating the life of a truly great railroad - the Nickel Plate Road.

We invite your participation. If you have photos, diagrams, maps, or other historical documents that you would like to see displayed on this website, please contact webmaster@nkphts.org.
