We were in Wisconsin for a couple of days to attend a family wedding. Took time out to enjoy this little excursion. We rode the train from East Troy up to the Elegant Farmer and back.

We rode the East Troy Electric Railroad to the Elegant Farmer one Saturday morning in October. The staff were very courteous and friendly and Conductor Jim, in our rail car, was very knowledgable giving us the history of the Railroad as we traveled the 20-30 minute ride to the Elegant Farmer. The ride is also fairly smooth and comfortable. I... More

We took the train with a large group of family members from East Troy to the Elegant Farmer. We didn't have a chance to look through the museum as the wait to buy tickets was very long and they were very slow at processing requests. The train itself was a special experience, especially for children. I would only recommend the... More

We booked an evening on the "Pizza Train" on a Saturday night and it was great. The dining cars have been renovated and are beautiful! Pizza was large and good! Narration about the car and the electric railroad's history was very interesting. Scenery was cheery and we got to see a dozen or so para-sail divers float down and land... More

My wife's great grand father commuted from Milwaukee to his summer home on Lake Buelah over this line and the segment from Mukwonago to East Troy brings back yesteryear. We make it a point to bring all of our grandchildren for a ride and the retelling of the story. A big thanks to all of the volunteers that keep this... More

Very friendly people here. If you stop at the Market, be prepared to wait in line.. very popular place. Love that you can ride all day on one admission fee. Will definitely make a trip next year on the Rail Fan Day (when they run all the cars).

We visit here almost every summer for a ride on the nostalgic trolley! Nice to see young ones experience what was a common mode of getting around in the last century. The staff is great and love the effort they put into restoring these vintage cars.
