East Troy Rail Trip

July 9, 2020

Experience a 14-mile trip through the beautiful Wisconsin countryside aboard the East Troy Railroad.

DeKalb County Farm Bureau has reserved a train car exclusively for Farm Bureau members for a scenic ride and lunch dining aboard the East Troy Electric Railroad on Thursday, July 9.

The lunch charter features a fine dining experience with a hot served chicken meal during a leisurely ride from the East Troy depot to Lower Phantom Lake. Stretch your legs and get some photographs at Indianhead Park in Mukwonago before enjoying dessert on the return trip to East Troy. Docents aboard the train will share the history of the railroad and sites.

After the two-hour train ride, the group will visit the J. Lauber’s Ice Cream Parlor in East Troy. There you will step back in time in this authentic 1920s soda fountain and corner store with its jukebox and large candy case.

Next stop will be to the Elegant Farmer bakery and specialty grocery store in Mukwonago before returning home.

Cost of this day trip is $80 for members, $90 for guests, and includes the railroad ride, train depot museum, lunch, and roundtrip motor coach transportation. The motor coach will depart from Farm Bureau at 9 a.m. and return by 6 p.m.

Registration for this trip opens on Monday, May 4. Pending shelter-in-place restrictions, the Farm Bureau office may be closed, so please call the Farm Bureau office and leave your name, phone number and the number of tickets (max. 4) and Farm Bureau staff will return your call in a timely basis to confirm reservations and accept credit card payment.
