Geocache Description:

(Edit Feb 9, 2013): The box is gone, but this is not a big problem. From the beginning the intention of this cache was to take you to the interesting place that would most of people miss during their stay in Moshi. The cache is now kind of VirtualCache, or 'Interesting place cache'.

It is still possible to log it as Found. What to do for it? Go there, enjoy the place and attach a picture, ideally with inprinted date, of something you found interesting at the station to the log... and e.g. few words how did you like the area... and this it.

*** Welcome to the ghost railway station! ***

As can be guessed from its name, the cache is located in Moshi railway station - interesting place with specific 'genius loci'. It is definitely worth of visit, especially if you like desolated shabby places where you can feel their history.

The station was build by German colonists and is part of so called 'Tanga Line'. The extension to Moshi was officially opened Feb 7, 1912. According the info from local people last train left the station more than 10 years ago....

Cache can be easily reached by foot from Moshi city centre. It is not recomended to go there after dark, as the area can be dangerous at this time.
