An Amoco station in Ellicott City would be the county's first commercial service station capable of fueling natural gas-powered cars and trucks, if the oil company wins government approval.Amoco Oil Co. hopes that by early next year, the station -- on U.S. 40 east of North Ridge Road -- will be filling cylinders in natural gas-powered fleets and perhaps a few private vehicles.The county Planning Board last week heard plans for the service on the 1.4-acre site and unanimously recommended that the Board of Appeals approve it."

The beige-plastic Wilkins-Rogers Mill is unmistakable, as are the red B&O Freight House and the purple Obladi hotel. Rendered in toy building blocks, the replicas of historic Ellicott City landmarks lend an air of authenticity to the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum's newest train garden, a 360-degree, custom-built feature that is proving to be a major attraction on Main Street. "This is definitely something unique," Tom Hane, site manager at the Ellicott City Station, said of the display by the Washington Metropolitan Area Lego Train Club.

Six-year-old Ethan Rushlow was almost finished visiting the B&O Railroad Museum Ellicott City Station when the Union Army caught up with him. Mike Radinsky, a Civil War re-enactor, first had Ethan stand on a slip of paper with the number 18 written on it so he would meet the requirement of being "over 18" (a tactic Radinsky later said was actually used in the 1800s). Radinsky made a perfunctory check of Ethan's ears, eyes and teeth, had him recite an oath and asked him to sign a form.

We've heard of the big lie and a white lie, but I think Ellicott City is the victim of a big white lie, something relatively innocuous that has been repeatedly told until it gains credibility.The issue involves repeated claims that the Mount Claire Station, part of the B& O Museum in Baltimore, is the oldest railroad station in the country.I've let this little bit of mendacious trivia go for some time.But in the last few weeks, I've been badgered from several angles -- a newspaper report, the 1991 Maryland Travel and Outdoor Guide and even a 39-year-old collection of photographs by A. Aubrey Bodine -- each of which claims that Mount Claire is the oldest railroad station in the United States.
