Geocache Description:

Old SideTracked Towersley Halt


Here is a twist to the phenomenon that is called "SideTracked"
Would have liked to bagged one for myself, but looks as if they have all been nabbed.
So, I've come up with a new concept called "Old SideTracked".
I Wonder if it will take off?

There are certain advantages, like not being run down by a train
or spotted by muggle passengers.

Anyway, here is Towersley Halt situated on the Phoenix Trail,
The halt doesn't exist anymore but the bridge right next to it is in perfect working order.
The trail is perfect for joggers, cyclists and walkers.
I think the trail goes from Princes Risborough to Thame and is virtually straight.
The trail is well used so use stealth.
The picture shows the bridge, notice my eldest who is standing on top of the cache.

Thame Station has a cache already and is called "INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION" GC134PA.

My boys love Thomas the Tank Engine and when I hear GWR, which this line belonged too,
I think of the Fat Controller's railway on Island of Sodor.

This is the real thing and it gets the imagination running, thinking back to that
glorious time of steam.
