Makuta Teridax: Hi

While I feel that Geocaching.com should hold the location for the cache owner and block other cachers from placing a cache in the area around this cache for a reasonable amount of time, we can’t do so forever.

Due to lack of response from the owner, this cache is now archived, so that someone else can place a cache in the area, and geocachers can once again enjoy visiting this location. Also, if it hasn’t been done already, please pick up any remaining cache bits as soon as possible.

If the owner wants it reopened, send me an e-mail and I’ll be happy to unarchive the cache listing if it still satisfies the requirement/guidelines.

(This reviewer note is in English so non-Norwegian cache owners, geocachers and cache reviewers can understand what it says.)

Thanks for your understanding,
Makuta Teridax

Geocache Description:


Bergen Light Rail

A light rail is a tram line that runs mostly separated from other traffic. Traffic lights gives it priority, so it can maintain speed. The last traditional tram in Bergen ended its scheduled traffic on New Year's Eve 1965. The idea of a light rail in Bergen originated already in the late sixties, but the construction of the light trail didn't start before January 2008. Stage 1 runs from the city park (Byparken) to Nesttun. The operations on this route started on June 22, 2010. There are plans for stage 2 and 3 that will extend the rail to Lagunen and the Airport respectively.

Technical data

The rolling stock are variotrams—a German-designed articulated low-floor tram model.

  • Length: 32,18 m
  • Width: 2,65 m
  • Height: 3,50 m
  • Floor height: 35 cm
  • Weight: 40 tonnes
  • Maximum speed: 80 km/h (70 km/h in operation)
  • Capacity: 212 passengers, 84 seats

The Cache

Cache container is a PET preform. Original content: pencil, waterproof log book, FTF price, and a D6. The cache should be easy to find—provided you understand the hint. I gave it a two star difficulty rating since this is a place with high muggle activity that make it difficult to retrieve and replace the cache without acting suspicious. It may be wise to avoid the rush hours around 8 AM and 4 PM.

Bybanen

En bybane er en sporvognslinje der banen i stor grad er skilt fra andre trafikkårer. Sammen med prioritert ferdsel i lyskryss gjør dette at den kan holde høy fart. Den siste trikken i Bergen avsluttet sin rutetrafikk nyttårsaften 1965. Allerede mot slutten av 60-tallet oppstod tanken om en bybane i Bergen. Etter mange år med politisk dragkamp, ble byggingen av bybanen satt i gang i januar 2008. Byggetrinn 1 går fra Byparken til Nesttun. 22 juni 2010 ble det endelig bybanedrift på denne strekningen. Det foreligger planer om byggetrinn 2 og 3 som vil forlenge bybanen til henholdsvis Lagunen og Flesland.

Tekniske data

Vognene til bybanen er av type variotram (eller variobahn). Dette er en tysk-designet modell der vognsettet har én leddet, gjennomgående kupé, og lav gulvflate for å lette adkomsten.

  • Lengde: 32,18 m
  • Bredde: 2,65 m
  • Høyde: 3,50 m
  • Gulvhøyde: 35 cm
  • Vekt: 40 tonn
  • Maks hastighet: 80 km/t (70 km/t i drift)
  • Kapasitet: 212 passasjerer, 84 sitteplasser

Cachen

Cachebeholderen er en PETling. Opprinnelig innhold: blyant, vannfast loggbok, FTF-premie og en D6. Cachen bør være lett å finne – i hvert fall hvis du skjønner hintet. Jeg har gitt den to stjerner i vanskelighetsgrad fordi dette er et sted med høy gompeaktivitet som kan gjøre det vanskelig å plukke frem beholderen eller plassere den tilbake uten å vekke mistanke. Det er sikkert lurt å unngå rushtidene rundt klokken 08.00 og 16.00.
