Geocache Description:

You are looking for a brown pill container with a Magnet. To prevent non cachers from stealing this cache it is stuck to the inside of the skirt.

This cache is located in the old Chicago Northwestern Switch yard. This yard used to be 4 tracks wide. Many years ago Rhinelander was served by the Soo Line, C&NW, and the Thunder Lake narrow gauge railroads. An accurate model of this can be seen in the basement of Rhinelander’s Railroad Museum. The R/R Museum is part of the Logging Museum Complex at Rhinelander's Pioneer Park.

I left Rhinelander in May of 1984 to serve in the US Army and the switch yard was still here. I came back in 1986 and it was a parking lot and street.

There are many things to see at the Logging Museum complex. The newest attraction is the Red Marquardt's Saw Mill.
