Geocache Description:

Flakvannsbanen # E 18

Her ville Flakkvannsbanen ha krysset E18

Den nye flotte motorveien E18, krysser her den gamle traseen til Flakvannsbanen, den nedlagte jernbanelinjen mellom Lillesand og Flaksvann på Birkeland.

Det er all grunn til å takke utbyggerne, for at de har markert dette stedet med et minnesmerke i form av en jernbanetrase. En jernbanetrasé som ligger på nordvestsiden av E 18. Riktignok uten skinner, men svillene ligger klare for både skinner og lokomotiv. Svillene som ligger her ble muligens funnet da arbeidet med E 18 pågikk. Det som er sikkert er at ansvarlig for gartnerarbeidet langs den nye motorveien sørget for at dette minnesmerket ble plassert her, og ingenting ville vært bedre enn om dette var noen av de 80000 svillene som ble benyttet på banen som også ble benyttet til minnesmerket.

Dette er en av fire cacher om Flakkvannsbanen De andre er:

The highway E18 crosses here the old railroad to Flaksvann, a disused railway line between Lillesand and Flaksvann on Birkeland.

There is very good reason to thank the developers, that they have marked this place with a memorial in the form of a rail route. A railway route which is located on the northwest side of E 18. Admittedly, no rails, but the sleepers are ready for both rails and locomotives. Sleepers located here was possibly found when working with the E 18 was in progress. What is certain is that responsible for the gardener to work along the new highway made sure that this memorial was placed here, and nothing would have been better if this was some of the 80,000 sleepers were used on the old track which was also used for the memorial.
