rigoleta: Unfortunately, the cache and the small train inside it has been brutally destructed by a bulldozer and at the moment we are geograficly too far away from Ventspils to take care of it, so we decided to close this listing [:(] This is not an easy decision to make, thus the most logical one.
We would like to thank everybody who visited and enjoyed this multi in its short time of existence.

Geocache Description:

[LV] Slepna kontrolpunkti izvietoti gar Ventspils šaursliežu dzelzcela liniju. Galaslepna galvenais konteiners ir netradicionalas formas, tacu tas ir ievietots liela izmera plastmasas karba. Esiet saudzigi pret sleptuvi un rupigi novietojiet visu atpakal. [EN] The route goes along the narrow gauge railway. The shape of the final container is untraditional, but it's placed into a large plastic box. Please handle the container with care and make sure you have hidden it properly.

[LV] 2010. gada 4. augusta Ventspili tika atklata rekonstrueta un pagarinata šaursliežu dzelzcela linija 2,6 km garuma – tagad ar mazbaniti var vizinaties no Piejuras brivdabas muzeja, cauri Jurmalas parkam un lidz pat Piedzivojumu parkam. Projekta laika tika izbuvetas vesturiskas Mazirbes un Plavas staciju, ka ari Aizputes lokomotivju depo replikas, vagonu nojumes, kases, oglu iekraušanas vietas, ka ari tilts-estakade. Paraleli dzelzcelam ir izveidots ari gajeju un velocelinš, kuru varesiet izmantot, lai pastaigatos/pabraukatos pa baniša maršrutu un pa celam izpilditu dažus musu sagatavotus uzdevumus. Turpinajuma ieteiksim secibu, kada apmeklet kontrolpunktus, bet ta nav obligati jaievero – galvenais ir pastaigas laika pabut visas vietas.

1. Jusu celojums mazbaniša pedas sakas stacija “Pludmale”, Jurmalas parka. Stacijas nojume atrodas uz perona – jusu uzdevums ir nostaigat no viena perona gala lidz otram paraleli sliedem un saskaitit, no cik betona blokiem ir veidota stacijas perona mala. A = (nepara skaitlis)

2. Talak jusu celš vedis uz lokomotivju depo – tas atrodas Piejuras muzeja teritorija, tacu, lai izpilditu uzdevumu, pietiks ar to, ka aiziesiet uz dotajam koordinatam (t.i. lidz muzeja žogam). Uzdevums: cik skurstenu ir depo ekai? B = (para skaitlis)

3. Turpat netalu no depo ieraudzisiet staciju ar nosaukumu “Muzejs”. Cik laternu ir uz perona? C = (para skaitlis)

4. Turpinot celu, kada bridi nonaksiet uz apraksta piemineta gajeju/velosipedistu celina un ieraudzisiet solinu, kurš ta vien mudina piesest un uz bridi klut par vilcienu verotaju. Kamer verojat, saskaitiet, no cik delišiem veidota solina virsma, pienemot, ka visi deli atrodas sava vieta. D = (nepara skaitlis)

5. Nakamais kontrolpunkts: mazitina stacija ar nosaukumu “Priedes”. Saskaitiet gridas delišus! E = (nepara skaitlis; šaurais delitis ari japieskaita)

6. Noraditajas koordinatas redzesiet apraksta piemineto tiltu-estakadi. Šeit jums jasaskaita koka “X” burti – cik to ir abas tilta puses kopa? F = (para skaitlis)

7. Nu jau esat pavisam tuvu finišam, pie skaistas stacijas “Kalns”, kas veidota ka lidziniece Plavas stacijas ekai, kada ta izskatijas ap 1920. gadu. Aplukojot amatnieku veikumu, saskaitiet, cik koka kolonnu ir šai buvei. G = (para skaitlis)

Netalu no stacijas redzesiet ari lielu, melnu dzesešanas kranu. Aizejiet lidz tam uz saskaitiet, ar cik skruvem šis milzis pieskruvets pie zemes! H = (para skaitlis)

Lai atrastu galaslepni, izmantojiet šo formulu:

N 57° 22.(A+B+(C*D)+102)

E 021° 32.((E*G)+(F*H)+193)

P.S. Mazbanitis kurses vel lidz 31. oktobrim cetras reizes diena, no trešdienas lidz svetdienai. Ja iekapsiet Kalna stacija, tas jus aizvizinas atpakal lidz muzejam. Vairak noderigas informacijas un interesantu faktu sk. mazbaniša majaslapa.

[EN] In 4 August 2010, the new extended narrow gauge railway route was opened in Ventspils Seaside Open-Air Museum. Now the line is 2.6 km long starting at the museum, going through Seaside park and ending near the Adventure park. Several replicas of historical railway buildings from different parts of Kurzeme were build as well as a small trestle bridge and a path parallel to the railroad you can use to have a nice walk through the forest or a short bicycle ride. In this case you can use the path to do some tasks to find the cache. This is the suggested route but you can create your own route if you prefer.

1. You start in the station “Pludmale” in the Seaside park. Your task is to walk along the platform and count the concrete blocks used to build the side of the platform. A = (uneven number)

2. Then you go to the engine shed. It is inside the museum territory but for this task you just need to go to the given coordinates (near the fence). How many chimneys are there on the roof of the engine shed? B = (even number)

3. You can see the station “Muzejs” is not too far away. How many lanterns are there on the platform? C = (even number)

4. Moving on you will find yourself on the path mentioned in the description. Keep on walking along it until you reach a bench. While having a short breather and watching the train going by find out how many small planks were used to build the surface of the bench. D = (uneven number)

5. The next stop is a small station called “Priedes”. Count the planks on the floor. E = (uneven number; including the “half” plank)

6. The next coordinates will lead you to the trestle bridge. How many letters “X” in total are there on both sides of the bridge? F = (even number)

7. You are getting closer! Here you find yourself at the station “Kalns”. How many columns can you see outside the building? G = (even number).

A large, black water pump is near the platform. How many screws are used to bolt this giant to the ground? H = (even number)

To find the cache use this formula:

N 57° 22.(A+B+(C*D)+102)

E 021° 32.((E*G)+(F*H)+193)

P.S. For more information see the homepage.
