The East Troy Electric Railroad is the last
vestige of Wisconsin’s once broad network
of electric interurban railways.
Concentrated in the southeastern quarter
of the state, this network once totaled
approximately 385 miles of track. Most of
the interurban railway mileage in Wisconsin
was built between 1890 and 1910; the last interurban
passenger in the state was carried
in 1963 by the North Shore Line.
The East Troy Interurban Line,
formerly a part of The Milwaukee
Electric Railway & Light Company,
carried passengers between East
Troy and Milwaukee from 1907
until 1939. After 1939 the six-mile
line existed as a railroad freight
connection for the Village of East
Troy. The line continues today as a
popular tourist railroad.
The East Troy Electric Railroad is a non-profit 501(c)(3)
organization run by volunteers committed to the operation and
preservation of historic trolleys and memorabilia. All proceeds
and sales benefit the education and preservation work of this
museum. Your contributions are tax deductible to the extent
permitted by law. Due to running vintage equipment, we reserve
the right to modify the schedule without notice.
