Biography

Since retiring, Chuck Spinks P.E. has been following his interest in history, particularly railroad history, has grown to be a major part of my time. He has spent many hours doing research, drilling down to the primary sources, and interpreting those sources from the perspective of a civil engineer. Mostly notably, Chuck contributes this unique perspective as the President of the Placer-Sierra Railroad Heritage Society and in his paper "Theodore Judah and the Blazing of the First Transcontinential Railroad over the Sierra Nevada."
