CapeFLYER gets hero's welcome in Wareham

May 27, 2018

The CapeFLYER got a hero’s welcome on Sunday when it was greeted by members of the Wareham Militia and a police honor guard with a salute for Memorial Day.

The CapeFLYER, which travels from Boston to Hyannis throughout the summer, was carrying 195 veterans in honor of the upcoming holiday.

Selectman Alan Slavin was also in attendance on the platform, a red poppy proudly displayed on his chest.

“We’re very happy to have the CapeFLYER stop here in Wareham,” Slavin said. “It’s been a great addition to the town.”

Passengers disembarked from the train for photos and to thank the militia for their service. Members of the Wareham-New Bedford Lodge of Elks No. 73 then sent the train on it’s way with a wave of the American flag.

This year marks the fourth summer that the CapeFLYER will be making stops in Wareham, providing residents with quick and easy access to the state’s capital. The CapeFLYER will run every weekend from now until Labor Day.
