Company History

In July of 2010, Ameritrack/Ameritrack West sold their assets to Railserve, Inc. and are now called Ameritrack Rail. Railserve is the leading provider of third-party rail switching services throughout the United States and Canada. Railserve is part of The Marmon / Berkshire Hathaway Company. With Ameritrack Rail being part of one of the most established companies in the world, the future is very bright. Ameritrack Rail will be expanding to Houston in 2011 with plans to expand their services to other cities in the very near future.

Company founders, Harris Eldridge and Ralph Jackson, formerly owned Armcore Railroad Contractors, Inc. from 1978-1998. Armcore was sold to Railworks as it formed in November of 1998. Following Railworks’ bankruptcy, Harris and Ralph left Railworks in 2003. They joined with Mike Jackson in 2003 and formed Ameritrack Railroad Contractors, Inc. Mike Eldridge joined Ameritrack in December of 2004. The four former owners have a combined 117 years experience in the railroad construction industry. Harris Eldridge formally retired on December 31, 2010.

Ameritrack was a full service railroad contractor providing maintenance and rehabilitation, new construction, road crossings, surfacing, 24/7 emergency call out and rail design/engineering. When Mike joined in 2004 bringing his Auto Cad skills, it enabled Ameritrack to not only engineer small, regional projects, but it also opened opportunities for larger scale projects throughout the entire Midwest. Since 2005 Ameritrack has designed and constructed rail systems from New York to Kansas.

In response to customer’s requests and to better serve their growing customer base in the state of Kansas, Ameritrack partnered with ASM Engineering and formed Ameritrack West, Inc. in 2009, located in El Dorado, Kansas. With the new partnership Ameritrack/ Ameritrack West then offered complete civil design along with their rail design expertise. Continuing to offer all previous services, Ameritrack has been a steadily growing force in the industrial rail construction industry.
