Barbara Krebs

Barbara Krebs is the newspaper correspondent with the York Dispatch.

Barbara is insightful. Her reporting involves research into the history of the county's railroad network. Her interviews with the older residents, who remember the trains and trolleys that once traveled through our communities and are now being developed as rails trails, bring the history behind the projects to life. Most importantly, her articles give York county residents a sense of ownership toward historic transportation lines that have been identified for rails trail projects.
