We have Motorway Mayhem. We have A-Road Anarchy (cos there aren’t many motorways in Wales!). But what about public transport users? SideTracked Caches are intended to provide quick cache-and-dashes at train stations. They should be placed where it will not cause alarm, as in this day and age, public transport is under greater scrutiny than ever before.
For more information on SideTracked Caches, please visit the SideTracked website.
Local information and the Cache
This cache can been done while travelling on the GWR line or as a cache and dash but be warned, it can get very busy with the traffic to/from the race course.
The GWR is an all-volunteer steam and diesel heritage railway in the English Cotswolds. Since 1981, the volunteers have restored over 10 miles of line, together with platforms, buildings, steam and diesel locomotives and rolling stock. In addition to a scheduled service, the GWR hosts a number of galas, enthusiasts’ events and events for all the family throughout the year, including our popular Santa Specials, Paddington Bear, Fish and Chips specials and dining trains.
For more information on the GWR line, please visit the GWR website.
With a landslip up the line from GWR Cheltenham, trains are not running from here until they have raised enough money to pay for the extensive repairs required, to secure the land round the landslip area. More information can be found on the GWR appeal web page site.
