George DeLuca used to have a blog at ComeToLowell.com which has since been cancelled. However, it remains an excellent source for information otherwise. Recently, I caught up on his WCAP segments "The Lowell Connection", which are, fantastically, available on his site at http://www.cometolowell.com/980WCAP.htm. I haven't listened to WCAP since my dad co-hosted The Computer Report back in the 1990s!
One great bit of information I learnt from these segments is that the train from New Hampshire to Lowell is planned to continue to Boston, express. It's possible that that ride might take what, 30 minutes?
Update 9/13: The blog is back! http://cometolowell.blogspot.com/
