Geocache Description:

A basic regular-sized cache near the railway station of Rekola.

Normaalikokoinen peruskätkö Rekolan aseman tuntumassa.


Suomeksi, kiitos!

The suburban area of Rekola is a part of the former Hanaböle village. In 1401 peasant Anders Räckhals presented lands to the Church of the Parish of Helsinki. As return Anders only required that a fair would be read to him every Sunday until the dooms day. Seems like a fair trade, right?

Nowadays Rekola is a peaceful small house area with about 2700 inhabitants.

The Helsinki-Hämeenlinna railway was completed in 1863 and the railway stop of Rekola was built in 1902. The railway stop was located near the manor of Räckhals and was a considerable boost to the area as it made it possible to work in Tikkurila and Helsinki. The train trip to Helsinki took just about 50 minutes. Largest employers were The Tikkurila Varnish Factory and the State Railways Engineering Workshop in Helsinki.

The whole station was renovated in 2004 when the fourth track from Tikkurila to Kerava was built. The old decayed station building was demolished and the station was turned into a single platform station.

Commuter trains K, N and T stop at Rekola and the station serves residental areas of Rekola and Asola where many new buildings have risen out lately. The station is also the closest one to the Peijas hospital. Today the train trip to Helsinki with the K-train takes only 25 minutes.


Rekolan kaupunginosa on osa entistä Hanabölen kylää. Vuonna 1401 hanaböleläinen talonpoika Anders Räckhals lahjoitti maata Helsingin pitäjän kirkolle. Vastapalveluksena Anders vaati ainoastaan, että hänelle luetaan messu joka sunnuntai tuomiopäivään asti. Melko reilu vaihtokauppa, eikö?

Nykyään Rekola on rauhallinen noin 2700 asukkaan omakotitaloalue.

Helsinki-Hämeenlinna rautatie valmistui 1863. Rekolan seisake rakennettiin vuonna 1902 Räckhalsin kartanon lähelle ja se oli merkittävä piristys alueelle, koska se mahdollisti töissäkäynnin Tikkurilassa ja Helsingissä. Matka Helsinkiin kesti enää 50 minuuttia. Suurimpia rekolalaisten työnantajia olivat Tikkurilan väri- ja vernissatehdas sekä VR:n konepaja Helsingissä.

Koko asema kunnostettiin vuonna 2004 kun Keravan kaupunkirata valmistui. Vanha ränsistynyt asemarakennus purettiin ja asema muutettiin keskilaituriasemaksi.

Lähijunat K, N ja T pysähtyvät Rekolan asemalla. Asema palvelee Rekolan ja Asolan asuinalueita. Rekola on myös Peijaksen sairaalaa lähinnä oleva asema.
