East Troy Electric Railroad

This is the electrified route of the East Troy Electric Railroad, the last remaining approximately 5.5-mile stretch of the long defunct TMER&L (The Milwaukee Electric Rail & Light) interurban service. In 2007, the ETER celebrates the 100th Anniversary of the opening of line from Milwaukee to East Troy. Visitors may enjoy rides aboard vintage interurbans that ran on the North and South Shore lines, on elevated cars such as those of the Chicago Transit Authority, or on street cars such as those of the Milwaukee system or PCC cars running elsewhere. Numerous cars are on display in the carbarn open to the public as is a museum, depot and gift shop. Visitors travel from around the world to enjoy a ride in the Wisconsin countryside and take a trip to nostalgia-land, too!
