drsolly: Too many problems.

  1. Some of the night tacks are missing
  2. The final is missing
  3. When I checked the electronics, it turned out that the USB hub was faulty. Easily replaced, but ...
  4. The really big problem is that the locomotive is worn out, and when I run the railway, it derails every minute or so. Or maybe the track is worn out? So, time to archive this cache. It was good while it lasted, and got a lot of Favourites.

Maybe if someone donates an electric model railway, I'll bring it back.

Geocache Description:

The Night Mail - a night cache

The given coords are for a handy rail station. The cache isn't there.

The first task

Where is she pulling up? That's the password to the Night Mail page. The username is nightmail. Use lower case throughout.

The second task

You are in control of the Night Mail. You need the name of the first Pullman, and of the second Pullman. Use all lower case. That's the username and password to this page

The third task

This is a night cache. I'd recommend using a head torch to see where you're going, a really strong torch to find the next fire tack, and a stick to keep your balance on the paths. Follow the trail of fire tacks.
