We have Motorway Mayhem. We have A-Road Anarchy. We even have
Village Vexation. But what about public transport users?
SideTracked Caches are intended to provide quick cache-and-dashes
at train stations. It is hoped this idea will spread across the
country in the same way as the MMs.
About Yardley Wood station
On the rare occasions I do not cycle to work, this is where I catch
my train. The station forms part of the branch line from Birmingham
Snow Hill and Birmingham Moor Street stations to Shirley and
Stratford-upon-Avon. It has its own car park (bristling with CCTV
cameras) and dedicated cycle parking facilities. On weekdays you
may need to park a few minutes walk away on account of heavy
commuter parking in the area.
About the cache
The cache is an SD card container within a pouch which it is hoped
will prevent dirt / damp ingress. It contains nothing but a logbook
so please bring your own pen / pencil. The FTF will also find the
Caught Ya! micro coin in the pouch. Following comments on the
difficulty of extracting the cache I have added a "handle" to the
pouch. Please replace the cache with the handle outwards and as far
out of view as possible.
If you can get a microcoin into (and shut) the SD card
container please feel free to do so. However, please do not leave
coins in the bag as this can make it extremely hard to extract the
