Geocache Description:

LAT : slepnis atrodas aluksnes baniša stacijas teritorija.

Nav jamekle zem sliedem.

ENG : the cache is hidden in the territory of Aluksne railway station. Don't search for it under the track.


LAT : Dzelzcela linija Gulbene - Aluksne ir šaursliežu 750 mm platuma dzelzcelš, kas savieno Gulbenes un Aluksnes pilsetas. Ši ir vieniga šaursliežu dzelzcela linija Baltijas valstis, kura notiek pasažieru parvadajumi. Musdienas liniju apsaimnieko SIA "Gulbenes-Aluksnes banitis". Linijas pirmsakumi meklejami 1903. gada, kad tika uzsakta dzelzcela linijas Plavinas - Valka buvnieciba. Posms no Plavinam lidz Gulbenei 1915.-1916. gada tika parveidots par platsliežu dzelzcela liniju. Ta ka kara laika šaja regiona notika aktiva karadarbiba, dzelzcelš nopietni cieta. Vilcienu kustibu 1920. gada 15. marta atjaunoja posma Gulbene-Aluksne, 1921. gada 6. septembri tika atjaunota satiksme ari posma lidz Valkai. Ari 2. pasaules karš nesa zaudejumus un postijumus Latvijas dzelzcelam. Pec kara tika atjaunota satiksme no Gulbenes lidz Apei, velak ari lidz Valgai, jo Valka dzelzcela mezglu neatjaunoja. 1970. gada sledza posmu no Apes lidz Valgai, bet 1973. gada ari no Apes lidz Aluksnei. 1984. gada atlikušajam dzelzcela posmam tika pieškirts tehnikas pieminekla statuss.

ENG : Narrow gate Gulbene – Aluksne railroad . It is the only public narrow-gauge railway in the Baltics (the width of the gauge is 750 mm). A 33-kilometer-long section remains of the narrow-gauge Stukmani-Valka railway launched in 1903. Banitis (from German Bahn – railroad) is the only railroad in Latvia that was recognized as a cultural monument of national significance. Passenger traffic from one regional centre to the other operates on a daily basis. Three pairs of trains per day go back and forth along this route. In June, 2005 the restoration of the narrow gauge railway engine Kc-4-332 leased from the Estonian railroad museum in Lavasaare was completed.
