Geocache Description:

This is a micro size cache located in Western Pasila. The location is easily reachable by public transportation, foot and bicycle.

A signal box or signal cabin is a building from which railway signals and points are controlled. Originally, all signalling was done by mechanical means. Points and signals were operated locally from individual levers or handles, requiring the signalman to walk between the various pieces of equipment to set them in the required position for each train that passed. Before long, it was realised that control should be concentrated into one building, which came to be known as a signal box. The signal box provided a dry, climate controlled space for the complex interlocking mechanics and also the signalman. The raised design of most signal boxes also provided the signalman with a good view of the railway under his control. Source: Wikipedia.

There is a road leading up to (nowadays remotely controlled) signal box on top of the hill. Note that I don't know if accessing this area could be considered trespassing. Cache is not located at the signal box or anywhere near the tracks. Do not go to the tracks!

There is no pen in the cache so bring your own.


Mikrokätkö Länsi-Pasilassa. Paikalle pääsee helposti sekä julkisilla että lihasvoimin.

Asetinlaite on turvalaite, jolla rautatieliikenteen ohjauksessa asetetaan keskitetysti yhdestä paikasta käsin junan käyttämällä kulkutiellä olevat vaihteet oikeisiin asentoihin ja opastimet ajon salliviin asentoihin. Asetinlaitetta käyttää liikenteenohjaaja (entiseltä nimikkeeltään junasuorittaja), asetinlaitemies tai vaihdemies. Asetinlaite voi olla joko mekaaninen tai sähköinen. Asetinlaite voi olla myös kauko-ohjattu. Lähde: Wikipedia.

Kätkö ei ole mäen päällä olevalla asentinlaiterakennuksella eikä lähellä rautatiekiskoja. Mene asetinlaitteen luo omalla vastuulla, en tiedä onko pääsy alueelle sallittu. Oli tai ei, älä mene kiskoille!

Kätkössä ei ole kynää joten ota oma mukaan.
