As one of the nation's leading railroad design, construction and maintenance companies in the United States, American Track is proud to announce the purchase of Dirtworks Rail of the Carolinas (HGNS Inc), which will operate as part of American Track moving forward.  

In 2016, Hilltop Private Capital consolidated two rail service companies to form American Track. Since that time, American Track has continued to grow organically and through acquisitions. With a legacy spanning over 40 years, the various entities now operate in nine locations across the U.S. under the name "American Track" to provide rail support services to essential mines, ports, refineries, manufacturing facilities, warehouses, trans-load facilities, railcar maintenance, shortline and mainline railroads across the U.S. More information about locations and services can be found on the company's website at

Thomas Lucario, President and CEO of American Track, commented: "Mark Snyder has built a great railroad service company with a strong reputation for excellence in the Carolinas and beyond. We are excited to add the former Dirtworks Rail organization to our ever-growing team here at American Track and to be able to offer additional capabilities to the Dirtworks Rail customers."

"We thank Mark and team for their trust and are pleased to support American Track in its growth objectives," said Kate Lehman, Managing Partner of Hilltop Private Capital. "American Track will continue to look for similar opportunities throughout 2021."
