bmabey at BenzII:~/$ cucumber --help
Usage: cucumber [options] [ [FILE|DIR|URL][:LINE[:LINE]*] ]+

cucumber examples/i18n/en/features
cucumber --language it examples/i18n/it/features/somma.feature:6:98:113
cucumber -n -i http://rubyurl.com/eeCl

So, to run a single scenario you just need to specify it's line number 
with the colon syntax. "cucumber features/something.feature:42"

Using the cucumber binary is the preferred way of running cucumber.  I 
like to reserve using the rake task for CI servers.
