Maryland train buffs shed a tear with the mention of the initials W, B and A.The Washington, Baltimore & Annapolis Electric Railroad was the great one that got away -- a state-of-the-art, high-speed, interurban company that died so regrettably in 1935.For just 27 years, the line linked a geographic triangle formed by the three cities in its name. Its efficient passenger service was heralded as a regional showpiece of progressive engineering. It was the 1908 equivalent of the Baltimore-Washington super-speed transport that is still dreamed of today.

The Baltimore and Annapolis Trail makes connections. Much as the train that traveled the same rail bed into the 1960s did, the 10-foot-wide paved recreational trail connects friends and neighbors, residents with employment, the rural with the urban, the past with the present, and most recently, art with transportation. Ranked the seventh-most heavily used rail-trail nationally by the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, the county-owned 13.3-mile linear park brings out a wide range of users from meandering families to cyclists in training and commuters -- nearly a million in all each year.

Organizers of the welcoming party for the Volvo Ocean Race now have a genial host with deep pockets to help pay for shindigs in Baltimore and Annapolis. Constellation Energy Group, the Baltimore-based parent of Baltimore Gas and Electric Co., announced yesterday that it will spend $500,000 to be the title sponsor of the April 2006 stopover, the only U.S. port-of-call in the seven-month global yacht race. The financial commitment, along with strong civic backing and logistics planning, puts preparations months ahead of the push for the 2001-2002 Volvo stopover, organizers say. "We're well on our way," said Gregory Barnhill, chairman of the board of Ocean Race Chesapeake, the in-port committee.
