The East Troy Railroad Museum is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational corporation dedicated to preserving the rail heritage of Wisconsin and America. We maintain and operate historic electric trolley and interurban railroad cars on track completed by The Milwaukee Electric Railway & Light Company (TMER&L) in 1907.
We enjoy educating visitors about the history of this interurban rail line and the history and operation of trolleys and interurban lines in general, while also explaining the role of rail transportation in the development of America.
The museum is operated completely by volunteer staff. All ticket sales, dinner train profits, memberships, gift shop sales and donations are used directly to fund the work of maintaining the railroad and museum.
We run regularly scheduled trains every Saturday and Sunday from early April through early November. From mid-June to late October trains run on Fridays too, departing East Troy at 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m.. We offer a variety of dinner trains, pizza trains, burger trains and special event trains throughout the season. Our trolleys or interurban rail cars can be chartered for special events. Please see our web site for information on our regular schedules and for pricing and ticketing for dinner trains, special events and charters: www.easttroyrr.org.
