My model train paraded around the living room floor of our Silver Spring home when I was 7 or 8 years old. I think we could put a little pellet in the engine to create the steam. It wasn't very big and I'm pretty sure we didn't have any buildings or trees to adorn the set-up. Considering I already had a travel bug, it fed my dreams of train travel to far-off places. Apparently, lots of people in Maryland - site of one end of the first railroad line in the United States - share a fondness for old-fashioned trains and devote countless hours setting up and running train gardens for our enjoyment.

The Indians have come back to the pack because Shin-Soo Choo and Carlos Santana failed to pick up the slack when Travis Hafner was sidelined. They entered the weekend 8-13 since Hafner went out, averaging 1.4 runs in the 13 losses. They promoted rookie Cord Phelps to play second base because Orlando Cabrera is hitting .213 since May1. … Mets President Sandy Alderson, a former first lieutenant who spent eight months in Vietnam, is making a big impression by taking time to visit Veterans Administration hospitals during his baseball travels.

Larry Davis would rather just block out the nightmare. Before last fall, when Morgan State could not stop any opponent and tumbled to a 5-6 record as a result, Davis had never endured a losing football season in his life. A year later, the Bears are promising a new look and a different bottom line on defense. They have a new coordinator in Michael Vite, who has installed an aggressive multiple set featuring blitzes from all angles. Gone is the read-and-react scheme that rendered Morgan State too passive.

When we last left the Black Guerrilla Family in April 2009, the feds had recorded gang members orchestrating hits from their prison cells while feasting on salmon and settling for crab imperial when lobster wasn't available. New leaders stepped up to fill the void, prompting a new federal investigation and a new round of indictments unveiled this week that show how authorities say this violent gang set up killings and organized drug deals using a nonprofit center that received city money to help stop the violence.

The beats start slow, then swell with speed, clickety-clacks giving way to chucka-chuckas and shoo-shoo-shoos. A whistle, a squeal, a whoo-whoo. Low rumbles and trembling tracks - a percussion symphony led by a conductor in a pin-striped cap. "There are a lot of rhythms in the railroads," Charles "Bill" Kinzer says just as a train slides by outside in Leakin Park. He pauses to listen. "Choo, choo, choo!" he chimes, mustache jumping. Kinzer is president of the Chesapeake & Allegheny Steam Preservation Society, which kicked off its annual season of free train rides Sunday, part of a quarter-century-old deal struck with the city: Members allow the public to ride their miniature trains - one-eighth the size of the real thing - on the second Sunday of the month, April through November, in exchange for 10 park acres, which they lease for a dollar a year.

Baltimore's retail renaissance and beleaguered mayor converged this week, two Targets, together, at Mondawmin Mall. If Sheila Dixon feels like she has a bull's-eye on her back, it didn't keep her from the opening of a store with the circle-dot logo. Shopping helped put Dixon in her current fix with prosecutors. So the retail setting could have been a little awkward. But when Dixon spoke about her shopping habits, there was no mention of Giorgio Armani, Jimmy Choo or Mano Swartz, names not found on the shelves of discount retailers, even those as hip as Chez Tar-jay.

"I lost my Choo!" In one of the more quoted scenes from the TV series Sex and the City, that's what Carrie cries in exasperation when one of her expensive Jimmy Choo sandals falls off during a dash to the Staten Island Ferry. Mayor Sheila Dixon, who says she's seen every episode of the HBO series, knows the allure of a Choo herself. According to a document obtained by The Sun this week, prosecutors investigating Dixon say she picked up a pair of Jimmy Choos on a lavish 2004 shopping spree in Chicago with developer Ronald H. Lipscomb, whom she was in a relationship with at the time.

Inspectors normally visit restaurants three times a year, though more often if the results indicate problems. Reports show Hunan Manor in east Columbia has had a chronic series of health code problems. A report done last month found, among other things: a mouse behind flour and sugar containers. a live roach on the floor in a storage area. food items stored on the floor. a "pungent odor" in a food-preparation area. dirty floors and debris, and a dead roach in a closet. In a March report, food had to be discarded because it was stored at improper temperatures; dead roaches were found inside ceiling light fixtures; and another roach was found next to a wall fan. Previous reports contain occasional customer complaints of insect parts in food, broken sugar bags on the floor contaminated by rodents, small holes in walls in back areas that can allow rodents and insects entry and general cleanliness problems.

SANFORD, Fla. -- speck in the center of the state known for its sunshine, Sanford is close to Orlando, Fla., and near Daytona but far away from both. Its downtown is a tangle of gas stations, fast-food joints and bait shops. It has a Main Street and a few prettily named thoroughfares such as Persimmon, Mulberry and Tangerine. Sanford also boasts an international airport, but it's better known for its trains -- well, one train in particular. It's here that you will find Amtrak's Auto Train station tucked into what appears to be a small neighborhood.

For most people, the microscopic particles that seep into our bodies this time every year are harmless. But for 35 million of us, the pollen that permeates the air turns into a natural poison in our nostrils and lungs, triggering the immune system in ways that send us to doctors and drug stores for relief. "Pollen is a pollutant that gets into the air. We think of pollutants as man-made, but this is a naturally occurring pollutant," said Dr. Richard Lockey, an allergy specialist at the University of South Florida College of Medicine.
