The cache is a magnetic flat container, intended as a cache-and-dash, situated near Chester Road Railway Station. This cache could possibly take flat Geocoins and Travel Bugs.
We have Motorway Mayhem. We have A-Road Anarchy and even Village Vexation. Now a series for public transport users! SideTracked Caches are intended to provide quick cache-and-dashes at train stations.
The original station, built by the London and North Western Railway (LNWR) in 1863, later became part of the London Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS). The present station booking office and waiting room were rebuilt in 1991-1992 during the electrification of the line.
The original LNWR station waiting room was dismantled, and moved to the 4.5 mile (7.2 km) heritage Battlefield Line Railway located in Leicestershire, to their Market Boswoth Station, also a former LNWR station. Bosworth Field was the site of the Wars of the Roses.
The station is served by London Midland with local Centro branded "Cross-City" services, operated by Class 323 electrical multiple units. The station is served by six trains an hour in each direction, with an average journey time to Birmingham New Street of around 13 minutes.
