ROSEMONT - Frederick County's Village of Rosemont hasn't changed a great deal since it was incorporated in 1953. No businesses have ever been able to open within the village. There has been little residential construction since the 1970s. Even the local property tax rate stands where it was 50 years ago. "The people of Rosemont don't want things to change," said Village Burgess Jackie Ebersole, referring to the 301 residents. "They like being all about family and not about business." Nestled at the southwest tip of the county, Rosemont sits in the shadow of West Virginia's Harpers Ferry mountains.

The morning commute turned miserable yesterday for thousands of people who take trains to Washington after CSX Transportation's computer system went down, halting train traffic from Canada to Florida for up to six hours. Most of the morning trains on the Maryland Rail Commuter service's Camden and Brunswick lines were canceled, and those few that ran were up to 90 minutes late. Both lines run on tracks owned and operated by CSX, a freight railroad. CSX said a computer virus infected its network and shut down the signaling and dispatching systems at 1:15 a.m. yesterday.

Maryland Rail Commuter train service on the Brunswick and Camden lines will be altered today because of a forecast of a winter ice storm, Maryland Transportation Administration officials announced yesterday. With freezing rain and ice accumulations expected, only MARC trains with an "S" at the top of their displays will operate. The Penn Line will operate on a regular schedule, but its runs may be reduced later depending on the path and severity of the storm, officials said. A severe storm can potentially result in extensive delays.

BRUNSWICK - A generation or two ago, the railroad was king in this Frederick County town. For a time, half of Brunswick's population either worked for the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, with its locomotive maintenance shops and vast freight yards, or for businesses that served the trains. The downtown was small but bustling. Old-timers remember movie houses, clothing stores, a hall that held dances once a week. Today, there is no place to catch a show, buy a coat or cut a rug - not without heading toward the malls of Frederick or the shopping centers of Charles Town, W.Va.
