The East Troy Electric Railroad will host Tracks & Treats during Halloween weekend, a celebration of the hallowed holiday featuring costumed train operators, conductors and depot personal. Children visiting the railroad will also receive treats from their haunted hosts.

The event will take place Saturday, Oct. 27 and Sunday, Oct. 28.

The normal daily fall schedule will be in-place offering hourly departures from the East Troy depot, 2002 Church St., beginning at 11 a.m. through 4 p.m.

Tracks & Treats, like all East Troy Electric Railroad special events, are included in the daily-unlimited ride fare. Tickets are $12.50 for adults, $10.50 for seniors, $8 for children ages 3-11 and free for children younger than 3.

Tracks & Treats marks the end of the 2012 regular operating season at the railroad.  The final special event of the year will be the holiday Christmas Express trains running the rails from Dec. 1-2 and Dec. 8-9.

“We’re looking forward to seeing a lot of ghosts and goblins during Tracks & Treats,” said Chuck Damaske, president of the East Troy Electric Railroad.  “We’re pleased to offer an event that children of all ages will find fun and informative, as well as offering the chance to see the last of the fall colors aboard a rail treasure.  Tracks & Treats is sure to place an exclamation mark on a terrific season.”

The East Troy Electric Railroad operates 10-mile round trip excursions from its historic depot and museum to the turn of the century-styled terminal at the renowned Elegant Farmer in Mukwonago. The railroad and adjoining museum are home to over 20 rail treasures including open cars, locomotives, streetcars and interurban coaches.  The railroad also operates the only electric interurban dining car train in North America.
