Geocache Description:

This cache belongs to the SideTracked series. It's not designed to take you to a magical place with breath-taking views. It's a distraction for the weary traveller but anyone else can go and find it too.

Chappel and Wakes Colne is a small station on the so called 'Gainsborough Line', a single track branch line running from Marks Tey to Sudbury which was opened as part of the Stour Valley Railway in 1865. This line originally ran all the way to Shelford near Cambridge but the section between Sudbury and Shelford was shut down in 1965. A solitary 2-coach train shunts backwards and forwards along this line.

This station hosts the East Anglian Railway Museum which is well worth a visit and an annual CAMRA beer festival which is VERY well worth a visit!.

The cache is a small green plastic screw-top container about the size of a 35mm film container.
