The York Haven Line has its roots in the independent Northern Central Railway which fully merged into the Pennsy in the 1910s. In the early 1900s, in conjunction with the construction of Enola Yard, the Atglen & Susquehanna "low grade" route from Enola to Parkesburg was constructed. From Enola to Wago junction, the two two-track lines paralleled each other, appearing as a four track main. This segment was collectively named the York Haven Line.
