Geocache Description:

This is intended as a quick cache and dash side-track for Bristol Parkway station.

About SideTracked 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. SideTracked started at Evesham
station on August 10th 2007, placed by schnarff & bikermel76.

It took a while to get started, but is now spreading across the
country! It is hoped this idea will spread across the country in
the same way as the MMs….but if hiding one PLEASE BE SENSIBLE and
remember that in this day and age, public transport is under
greater scrutiny than ever before, so, although these caches should
be quick and easy grabs,
PLEASE don’t place a Cache where it could
cause alarm!!! (Particularly, please ensure that you aware of the
new rules of 04/09/08 before hiding your Cache!)

Bristol parkway station. Well what can you say about it? I know what I'd like to
say about it but I won't, this being a family site.

Bristol Parkway is apparently the 212 most used station in the UK, which isn't bad
for what in effect a glorified bus shelter. It was build in the
1970s to serve as a way of speeding up the London to Wales route,
as the north side of the city is on a more direct line to the
Severn Tunnel. Getting to Parkway: Apart from the trains which stop
here; Parkway is served by buses from Bristol town centre and
outlying suburbs, and is tangentially connected to the ring-road
cycle track. If you're coming by car, then the best place to park
is in the station short-stay drop off car park (free for 20
minutes).

As per all stations, the density of muggles varies so you will need
to pick your time. Notes: I've upped the difficulty to 2. Kudos to
Captain Gore-Tex for the FTF.
