Geocache Description:


This cache is not at the listed location!

Although when the Oregon Electric Railway Museum is open you can see historic streetcars that nearly disappeared, but now reappear on the rails here at Powerland Heritage Park. The final waypoint is listed below.

This is a bonus cache for my 3 Railroad Themed Cache Series:
- Disappearing RR Blues
- Reappearing RR Smiles
- Oregon RR History.
- Fallen RR Flags
- Any SideTracked cache placed by subwaymark

As of July 2014 I have 29, plus 8 archived caches that celebrate the history of Railroads in Northwest Oregon. I have RR themed caches in the following counties: Marion, Polk, Clackamas, Multnomah, Washington, Linn and Lane, Lincoln, Tillamook and now Hood River. I have plans for more.

To encourage visitors, I've been prompted to generate this bonus cache. To find this cache, I ask that you have found at least 18 (currently 62% of active caches, 49% of total) of my RR themed caches. The rating on this cache is based on the fact the caches are spread far and wide and have different D/T ratings, not the cache itself. This cache would be rated at 1.5/1.5.

The actual cache location is: N 45° 02.983 W 122° 58.964

There are 2 $1 US coin for FTF! CONGRATS on the McGeesters for FTF!

Here is a listing of my Railroad Themed caches throughout NW Oregon:

NOTE: This table will be updates soon as it is missing newer caches, and many caches have been renamed (but retained their GC code).
