For Immediate Release

York, Pa. – Barley Snyder is pleased to announce the Honorable Stephen P. Linebaugh (Ret.)  has been elected to the board of directors for the Northern Central Railway of York (NCR), a nonprofit and charitable organization. 

NCR is based in New Freedom, Pennsylvania and offers historical, educational, and entertaining railroad excursions. Founders William H. Simpson and D. Reed Anderson, both local community leaders and avid train enthusiasts, created the railway with the goal of attracting tourism to York County. NCR now offers its passengers an authentic experience with a replica Civil War-era steam locomotive as well as a mid-20th century diesel locomotive. As a board member, Linebaugh will be responsible for overseeing the development of the railway to promote growth as a main visitor attraction in York County. 

“I am pleased to have been called to honor the memory of Bill Simpson and Reed Anderson who were a moving force in creating a premier attraction in York County and single-handedly built the railroad it has become,” said Linebaugh. “It is incredible to be a part of this charitable organization and watch residents and visitors alike enjoy what the railroad has to offer.” 

Linebaugh is a retired judge with the York County Court of Common Pleas who joined Barley Snyder in 2019. He chairs the firm’s Alternative Dispute Resolution Service Team and is a member of the Litigation Practice Group. In addition to his involvement with NCR, he has volunteered his time in leadership positions to nonprofit organizations such as the Margaret Moul Foundation, Bob Hoffman Dover YMCA, York County Crime Stoppers, the Boy Scouts of America, YouthBuild and the York County March of Dimes. 

“NCR is thrilled to have Judge Linebaugh join the board,” said Ashley Zimmerman, Executive Director of NCR. “He has a great excitement for the train community and the York County Community we serve.”
