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 offer regularly scheduled train rides every Saturday and Sunday from April through late October. Trains run on Fridays too From June to August. We offer a variety of Dinner Trains, Sunday Brunch Trains, Burger trains and Special Event Trains throughout the season. Our trolleys or interurban rail cars can be chartered for special events.

The East Troy Railroad Museum is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational corporation dedicated to engaging visitors the heritage of electric interurban railways and trolley systems.

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 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.

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.
