The train ride between East Troy and the Elegant Farmer is a fun way to spend a few hours. It is especially fun for families with children or train hobbyists.

The third stop is Indianhead Park in Mukwonago. There is a small swimming beach, a bridge over the river and picnic tables. The main ticket office is the depot and museum in East Troy.
