Arthur Lloyd, a man who for decades has been immersed, by vocation and avocation, in the world of railroads and public transportation, will speak at a program sponsored by the Menlo Park Historical Association at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 21.
The event is free and open to the public.
The program, "Menlo Park and the Railroad: The First Hundred Years," will be presented in the Fireside Room of the Menlo Park Recreation Center, 700 Alma St., in the Menlo Park Civic Center.
Mr. Lloyd, a longtime advocate for rail travel, was director of public affairs for Amtrak's Western operations for 20 years before retiring in 1991.
He continues to be involved with public transportation matters as a director of the San Mateo County Transit District, and a director of Caltrain's Joint Powers Board, according to the historical association.
A railroad buff, he also is a member of numerous railroad history groups and museums.
