Stu Kerr, the pioneering television host whose many roles became fond memories for generations of Baltimore children, died early yesterday at his Riderwood home after an eight-year battle with bone marrow cancer. He was 66.His four-decade career in broadcasting coincided with the rise of television, and no face or name was more closely associated with the medium in Baltimore. He is best remembered for his folksy, imaginative performances as Bozo the Clown, the zany Professor Kool, the conductor of "Caboose," Mr. Fortune of "Dialing for Dollars" and Commander Stukker of "54 Space Corps."

CASS, W.Va. - Atop the third highest peak in West Virginia, an eerie whistle snaked its way through the thick birch and spruce trees. The sound echoed from a churning 1945 Shay steam locomotive, the last one ever built. During the warm months, the 162-ton brute carries hundreds of tourists and a few campers up and down the Cass Scenic Railroad, the former artery of a century-old logging operation in the Allegheny Mountains. Local residents and railway buffs fought to preserve the line in the 1960s, after a paper company moved on to fresher forests and hired a scrapper to tear up the railroad.

THE ''STARLIGHT EXPRESS'' that opened last night at the Lyric Opera House is a scaled-down version of the production that played on Broadway for more than a year.The verdict, however, is the same. If you like spectacle, song and dance, you should be pleased with what you see. If you're looking for something more, say a plot and shading, go elsewhere.Actually, the plot is easier to follow at the Lyric than it was in New York, where most of the lyrics were indecipherable. This is not the case at the Lyric.

For nearly two decades, the antique cabooses have sat near the train tracks on Hammonds Ferry Road. Children have swung up the metal steps to play conductor and all sorts of folks have sat on the cabooses to watch the passenger trains speed by or count the cars on rumbling freight trains. Although their paint is chipped and fading, the cabooses are a landmark, Lansdowne residents say, and a reminder of the important role that trains have played in this southwestern Baltimore County community, once home to many employees of the B&O Railroad.
