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.
About Wilmcote Station
Wilmcote railway station serves the village of Wilmcote, about 4 miles north-north-west of Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire, England.
The present two-platform station was opened in 1908, at the same time as the inauguration of the North Warwickshire Line, the Great Western Railway's new mainline route from Birmingham to Cheltenham Spa. This replaced an earlier station which had been in existence since 1860, on the Stratford-upon-Avon Railway Company's branch line from Hatton on the GWR Oxford to Birmingham route.
Today, the station, which is managed by London Midland, is served by hourly local trains between Stratford and Birmingham, operated by London Midland, and Chiltern Railways services (up to 10 a day each way) between Stratford and Leamington Spa, most of which are through services to and from London Marylebone.
