Past Event – Speaker Series: March 3, 2024 Sam Sperry – Moraga’s Train History

The Moraga Historical Society hosted a speaker event at the Hacienda’s Casita room featuring Sam Sperry, an avowed train buff with an encyclopedic knowledge of the trains that passed through Moraga from 1913-1957. He has done a shortened version during the past decade for the Third Grade History Tour presented annually by the Moraga Historical Society, but on March 3, dressed in a conductor uniform, he offered a two hour tour de force to a sellout audience. Vera Kochan’s review in Lamorinda Weekly, March 3, 2024: The history of trains in Moraga ‘ an MHS event, offers a summary. For those wishing to revisit his slide show Sam has graciously provided an annotated online version of his Moraga Train History.
