East Troy Railroad

Step back in time when life was a little simpler. Our historic rail cars travel a 10-mile trip through beautiful Southeast Wisconsin. Meander through the depot museum where kids can be a trolley motorman, discover the joy of model layouts, and learn about electricity. The gift shop features a unique selection of railroad souvenirs for all ages.

The East Troy Railroad Museum operates on the last remaining piece of the original interurban network which operated in Wisconsin. By 1939, the railroad was retired by The Milwaukee Electric Railway & Light Company due to lack of ridership. Since everything from gas to groceries came in to East Troy by our line, the town passed a referendum to purchase the remaining 7.5 mile stretch of track and overhead for freight purposes. The Village of East Troy operated the railroad until the year 2000 when it was purchased by the Friends of East Troy Railroad. 

Advance reservations are required for ALL RIDES.
