Latviski

Neskatoties uz to, ka Griekji un Romieshi ir slaveni ar saviem saniegumiem citas jomas, tie nav ipashi pazistami ka dzelzcelu buvetaji. Protams, jo antikaja pasaule nekas netuvojas musdienu sistematizetajiem pasazhieru vilcieniem, kas seko grafikiem, un kurus velk lokomotives pa dzelzs sliedem. Neviena no shiim lietam nebija pat seshdesmit gadus veca, kad tas visas pirmo reizi tika savienotas kopa Liverpules - Mancesteras dzelzcela marshruta 1830. gada. Pati pamata koncepcija gan tomer ir loti vienkarsha - sagatavota sliede, kas vada taja braucosho transporta lidzekli ta, lai tas nepamet savu marshrutu. Pirmais shaads "sliezhu celjsh" atradaas Diolkosaa, Griekjijaa, 600 gadus pirms musu eras, un bija vienkarshi iekaltas renes kalkakmeni.

Musu stasts gan bus par Rigas Bolderajas dzelzcelu, kas tika atklats jau senaja 1873. gada, un kuru 18km garuma izbuveja "Rigas - Dinaburgas dzelzcela sabiedriba". Velak dzelzcelu parnema valsts.

Pirmais punkts:

Multislepna sakuma koordinates.

Pec Rigas-Bolderajas (1873) un Rigas-Tukuma dzelzcela atklashanas (1877). Muizhas zemju rietumu dalaa, uzperkot vairakus gruntsgabalus tika ierikota dzelzcela stacija. 1912. gada sheit pasazhieru un dzelzcela personala vajadzibam uzcela jaunu eku. Shobriid stacijas eeka joprojam ir saglabajusies, un tas pamatos var atrast Niveleshanas Punktu. Atrodiet to, un noskaidrojiet kura gada tas ir uzstadits (X)

Otrais punkts:

  • Tu esi nonacis pie majinas. Tai pie loga ir stabs, kads skaitlis ir uz staba mazas plaksnites? A
  • Apluko mazo majinu, atradisi dazhus "muzikas instrumentus" visus vienu otram blakus, cik to ir? Ieskaiti ari to jocigo, kas izskatas citadi ka parejie!B

Treshais punkts:

LVI LVIII CXCIX XXIV II DCCLXXI
Atshkiriba no otras vietas, te nekadu mazu majinu nav. Bet ir dazhi peleeki, izteikti numereti objekti. Skatoties no sliezhu puses - C, D, E, F

Burtus parvershot skaitljos, ievieto tos shajaas darbibas:

G = C+D
H = Gadskaitlja X pedejo divu ciparu starpiba
I = A*E
J = B*E
K = C-D-E

Ierodoties no dienvidrietumiem ieteicams auto atstat ~900m pirms nulles punkta, jo talak tiek tikai malu un dublu nebiedeeti pilnpiedzinas auto.

English

Even though Greeks and Romans were quite inventive in other directions, they are not widely acknowledged as builders of railways. True, the ancient world was totally innocent of anything approaching the modern concept of the public railway, with passenger trains running to a timetable, pulled by locomotives, and on iron rails. None of these components was more than 60 years old when they came together for the first time in the Liverpool-Manchester of 1830. The basic concept of the railway, however, is very much more simple: a prepared track which so guides the vehicles running on it that they cannot leave the track

The first track of this kind could have been located in Diolkos, Greece, 600 years bc.

Our story, however, is of the local Bolderaja railroad, located much closer, and of much younger age. It was opened in 1873. and it was built by the Riga-Dunaburg Rairoad association, it streched 18km long, and is still there, although is only used for cargo trains

First waypoint:

At the starting coordinates.

This train station was built right after the opening of the Riga - Bolderaja railroad, in 1873. In 1912, a new building was made. This building still stands. Find the Benchmarking point in the building exterior, and the year it's been placed. This is value X

Second waypoint:

LVI LVII DCLXXXIX XXIV II DCCXLV

  • You are at a small house. An electricity pole is next to the window. What number is on the small plate? A
  • Look at the small house itself, and you will find a few "musical instruments" all next to each other. How many are there? Count also the strange one, which is different from the othersB

Third waypoint:

LVI LVIII CXCIX XXIV II DCCLXXI

This location doesn't have any small houses, but if you stand on the rails, you will see some grey objects with distinct numbers on them - C, D, E, F

Turn letters into numbers, and insert into these equations:

G = C+D
H = Substract the last two digits of the year X from one another
I = A*E
J = B*E
K = C-D-E

Cache location:

N56 5G.HI E024 02.CJK

If you arrive by car from SW direction, leave it some 900m before zero-point, the rest of the road is slippery and wet.
