Cape Cod train set to roll by summer

Summer on Cape Cod means sandy beaches, fried clams, and — too often — mileslong traffic jams. But starting next May, visitors will be able to avoid short tempers and long lines of brake lights by taking a new weekend-only train between South Station and Hyannis.
