Star Trak was incorporated in 1996. Raymond Clauss, President of the company, began the restoration business in 1979 when he was contracted by Steam Locomotive Corporation of America to rebuild ex-NYC business car #2. This project included a complete rebuilding and reconfiguration from the wheels up. The end result was American Coal Enterprise's, Independence.
The past thirty-eight years have included numerous projects which can be found in our client list. The most notable is the recent completion of the famous Twentieth Century Limited observation car, the Hickory Creek.
