EAST TROY, Wis. — The East Troy Railroad Museum is preparing for Railfest 2017 on June 24. The event will feature trolley rides and special displays aimed to entertain hardcore railroad enthusiasts and families alike.

“Railfest will be an interesting, fun, and informative day out for families,” says Ryan Jonas, museum president. “And it will also still appeal to the avid railfan interested in seeing and riding all our operating equipment.”

Regular trains begin running at 9:30 a.m. and the last train departs East Troy at 3 p.m. The trains complete a round-trip between East Troy and Indianhead Park in Mukwonago in about 90 minutes and one ticket is good for rides all day. There will also be miniature train rides, speeder rides, facing painting, a gandy-dancer demonstration and tours of of the museum’s restoration facility.
