After 16 years of faithful service, our very dedicated newsletter editor, Mr. Ray E. Reter, has formally announced his retirement from the role as Newsletter Editor. As a founding member of the Friends of the Stewartstown Railroad, Inc, Mr. Reter ensured the quarterly newsletter, affectionately known as 7.4, reached the hands of thousands of supporters and members without a missed issue. We are forever grateful for his time, dedication, and talents with this important fundraising tool. He leaves a major role to fill.


With this said, we are currently looking for someone new to take on this role. Over 80% of the articles and submissions are provided to the editor ahead of time. Responsibilities include: calling for submissions, laying out articles and pictures, including any timely important details such as workday announcements or ride schedules, and then sending the completed edition off for printing. Please let us know (at if you are interested in taking on this important volunteer role. You do not need to live in York, PA. Thank you.
