Geocache Description:



CZ: Sestá cache venovaná opušteným vleckám kolem Kladna - tato vedla k dolu Ferdinand.

Sachta Ferdinand /Prago II/ byla hloubena v rozmezi 1849 az 1871, byl zde velky pritok spodnich vod, a tak byla sachta pouzivana jako vodotezni. Uhli bylo v pozdejsi dobe vyvazeno sachtou Prago III v Dubi. Tezba ukoncena r. 1921.

Vlecka mela delku 2.8km, byla napojena na hlavni trat ve stanici Bustehrad (dnes Kladno-Vrapice) a dodnes se z ni zachovaly naspy a zarezy. Cache je umistena na pekne tematicke vyhlidce, kde vsak muze byt obcas neobvykly mudlovsky provoz (o dolu Ferdinand).

Existuji dve varianty prochazky k cachi:

1. výchozí místo a parkoviste na jiznim okraji Cvrcovic: N50°10.632 E014°09.419, sledovanim telesa byvale vlecky se dostanete nejdriv k pekne vyhlidce (N50°10.540 E014°09.645) a potom ke cachi. Dale doporucuji sledovat byvalou vlecku a podivat se na mohutny nasep a po nem az k lesu (N50°10.251 E014°09.471, dal uz je soukromy pozemek) a pri navratu na vetveni (N50°10.378 E014°09.497) pokracovat severneji az k zasypane sachte Marie Antonie (N50°10.335 E014°09.275).

2. zacnete na silnici Dubi-Cvrcovice (N50°10.313 E014°09.171, omezene se tam da i zaparkovat) a dejte se na vychod. Za chvilku prijdete k zasypane sachte Marie Antonie (N50°10.335 E014°09.275), od ni porad na vychod dojdete az k cachi. Po uspesnem odlovu se muzete jeste pokochat vyhlidkou na horu Rip (N50°10.540 E014°09.645) a po ceste zpatky si projit mohutny nasep az k bodu N50°10.251 E014°09.471 (dal uz je soukromy pozemek).

Cache je tvorena 1.1l KlipFresh krabickou. Pozor na zvyseny provoz mudlu (pejsci, apod.)

Cache obsahuje císlo F, zapište si ho a po odlovení všech "vleckových" keší budete odmeneni prémiovou mysterkou.


EN: 6th tribute to abandoned rail sidings to coal mines near Kladno - Ferdinand

The shaft Ferdinand /Prago II/ was being digged between 1849 and 1871 (because of massive ground water), mining was shutted down in 1921.

The rail siding was 2.8km long and was connected to main railroad at the Bustehrad station (today Kladno-Vrapice). Cache is located at place with nice thematic vista with occasional abnormal muggle-traffic (about Ferdinand mine).

There are two variants of cache-hunting-walk:

1. parking place and a trailhead at south tip of Cvrcovice (N50°10.632 E014°09.419), short walk to a nice vista (N50°10.540 E014°09.645) ant then to the cache site. After cache-hunt you can continue on top of a causeway up to N50°10.251 E014°09.471 (private area beyond this point). On way back you can take a detour to N50°10.335 E014°09.275 (filled-up shaft Marie Antonie).

2. trailhead and limited parking place at N50°10.313 E014°09.171. Walk by Marie Antonie shaft (N50°10.335 E014°09.275) to the cache site. Visit a nice vista (N50°10.540 E014°09.645) afterwards and possibly a massive causeway up to N50°10.251 E014°09.471.

The cache itself: look for 1.1l KlipFresh container. Mind muggles walking dogs, ..

Cache contains secret number F, remember it and after all "rail siding" caches you will be able to find premium mystery cache.
