Geocache Description:

There is no container at the train station! Read on for instructions...

The Manheim Train Station is a great place to train your kids!

The "freight room" is now a community room and museum. The freight office and men's and women's waiting rooms have been restored to original decor. The facilities are open to the public, free of charge, on Sunday afternoons from 1-4pm from June through September or by appointment. The station continues to be a popular tour for school children who enjoy the history and the trolley ride usually available with the tour.

This is also the home of the Birney Trolley # 236. In 1990 a derelict Brill Birney safety car trolley was obtained from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission. It was one of only a small number of surviving cars of this type. Originally in service in Lancaster, it was lovingly restored by Society members. Weather permitting, the trolley is available for tours and short rides when the station is open.

There is no reason to climb on any of the cars. There are neighbors across the street, so park appropriately and use common urban stealth.


Now for the puzzle:
