Charles Inglis Hutton (c1879-1946)

1946 Obituary [1]

CHARLES INGLIS HUTTON, who had an extensive engineering experience as a locomotive engineer in Burma and India, entered the works of the North London Railway at Bow as a pupil under the late Mr. H. J. Pryce in 1896, and on the conclusion of his pupilage three years later, gained further experience in the drawing office.

After training as a fireman at the Exeter depot of the London and South Western Railway he was employed as draughtsman in the carriage and wagon department of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway at Newton Heath until 1903, when he was appointed assistant locomotive superintendent with the Burma Railways Company, being promoted to the post of district superintendent seven years later.

Subsequently he was made deputy superintendent of the carriage and wagon department, and from 1927 to 1934 served as locomotive superintendent. He then left Burma for Hyderabad to take up the appointment of locomotive carriage and wagon superintendent of the Nizam's State Railways, having been specially selected to carry out an extensive reorganization of his department. On the termination of this engagement three years later he retired.

Mr. Hutton, whose death occurred on 30th April 1946 in his sixty-seventh year, was elected an Associate Member of the Institution in 1908. He was also an Associate Member of the Institution of Civil Engineers.
