Hill Railroad Car Company


Founded in 1989, Hill Railroad Car Company is built on the philosophy of old-fashioned quality for a reasonable price. We started out with a rail siding as our first shop and a truck as our adminstrative office. Although over the years the name has changed, the values the original company was founded upon have not. Now 19 years later, the company has grown into a multifaceted corporation with two car shops, a fabrication shop, an office complex, and a mobile repair service.
