Ok, How did they get from Boston to Lowell, via Walpole and Framingham? This doesn,t make sense...

Yes. BL-1 and LB-2 were routed Boston-Readville-Walpole-Framingham-Lowell. Historically they provided a connection for interchange freight going to or from the NYC/PC at Framingham (not interchanged in Boston because the move would have had to go via South Station) and the B&M at Lowell. The ex-NH Boston-Lowell jobs were discontinued a year or two after PC took over the NH

Thank you, sir. A round-about route, I wouldn't have guessed...
