Geocache Description:


Swerail 01




Inne på Göteborgs central - På en plattform...

Detta är den första cachen i min serie om svenska järnvägsstationer.
Denna gång skall vi besöka sveriges andra största stad Göteborg


I mitten av 1800-talet började man anlägga järnvägar i Sverige och en av de första sträckorna var Göteborg - Jonsered som invigdes den 1 december 1856, varför behovet av ett stationshus uppstod.
Göteborgs centralstation har byggts om ett antal gånger sedan invigningen den 4 oktober 1858. I den ursprungliga stationen, ritad av arkitekten Adolf Wilhelm Edelsvärd, fanns en banhall som tågen stannade i. På 1920-talet byggdes den om till en vänthall. Tidigare fanns det även ett lokstall vid stationen, detta är numera borta och lokstationen ligger istället i Sävenäs. Under 1800-talet passerade över en miljon svenskar byggnaden på sin väg till hamnen och Amerika.
Stationen är byggd på resterna av bastionen Johannes Rex, ett utanverk till den tidigare stadsmuren.

*
Cachen är ALDRIG på eller i direkt anslutning till spåret, man ska heller aldrig behöva korsa över något spår för att komma till den.
Spårspring är olagligt och livsfarligt

Inget i ledningen
Ovanför järnvägen finns det 16 000 V i ledningen, därför kommer aldrig cachen ligga så man behöver klättra i tex en stolpe
 
Ursäkta om jag låter gnällig, men jag vill bara skapa en trevlig serie, inte en livsfara.
Tack




In the mid-1800s, construction of railways in Sweden and one of the first routes was Gothenburg - Jonsered which opened December 1, 1856, why the need for a station occurred.

Gothenburg Central Station has been rebuilt several times since its inauguration in October 4, 1858. The original station, designed by architect Adolf Wilhelm, was a track maintenance of the trains stayed in. In the 1920s it was built on to a waiting room. Previously, there was also an engine shed at the station, this is now gone and lokstationen lies instead in Sävenäs. During the 1800s, crossed over one million people building on their way to the port and the Americas.
The station is built on the remains of the bastion John Rex, one without work to the old city wall.

The cache is NEVER on or very close to the rail. You will never need to cross the track to get to it
Taking a shortcut over the tracks is illegal and highly dangerous

Nothing in the electric cables
Above the rails, there’s 16 000 V in the cables, for that reason, the cache will never be so you need to clim any poles or something like that
 
Sorry for being a whimpering guy, but I want to create a nice series, not a dangerous one.
