This cache is located at the head of the Omaha bike trail parking avalible at N43 55.123 W090 16.032 you will be looking for a film can
I have posted 3 pictures of the area where you will be standing when you find the cache
one is of the old depot in the early 1900's.
next is of a train wreck in 1913 with a steam engine.
and then in 1965 another train wreck in the upper right of the picture you can see corn had spilled out of one of the cars
the local farmers including my father came and picked up the corn to feed to there animals.
I also remember another train that derailed in the 1970's it just missed the restaurant that was about 100 feet north of here.I have no picture of this accident it was carrying coal going to portage wi..
If you are into benchmarks there is a cement wall 50 feet north from here with a disk on the south end of it in the winter it will be under the snow
