Were there Orphan Train stops in Pennsylvania?

Surnames: DORGAN DARGAN NEESE EVANS ARNOLD
Between 1910 when John Dorgan's mother(Charlotte Neese Dargan)died in Philadelphia, PA and the 1920 census, young John, b. 1901,moved west. In 1920 he is living with the William H. & Alice (nee Arnold) Evans family(non-relatives) in Peach Bottom Township, York County, Pennsylvania, and working their farm. How? Why there? Who was the connection?
Was there an Orphan Train circa 1910~1920 that left Philadelphia and stopped in York County,Pennsylvania? Still trying to solve mystery of how he ended up living in York County in 1920. Cannot find a record of him between April 1910 and 1920 census. Family story says his father(John Dargan)left him orphaned,after his mother died.
