Really Sidetracked - Bromsgrove Traditional Geocache

This cache has been archived.

dadu 13: This is the first time this one has gone missing, though we have had to check in it quite a few times.
With the new Station having been built even further away, this one is no longer relevant and thus not worth replacing, thanks to all who found it and my apologies for not having checked it out earlier 😴

About SideTracked

We have Motorway Mayhem. We have A-Road Anarchy ('cos there
aren’t many Motorways in Wales). But what about public
transport users? SideTracked caches are intended to provide quick
Cache-and-Dashes at Train Stations.

It is hoped this idea will spread across the country in the same
way as the MMs…. If hiding one PLEASE BE SENSIBLE and
remember that in this day and age, public transport is under
greater scrutiny than ever before, so, although these caches should
be quick and easy grabs, PLEASE don’t place a Cache where it
could cause alarm.
Bromsgrove railway station serves the town of Bromsgrove in
Worcestershire. It is located at the foot of the two-mile Lickey
Incline which ascends at a gradient of 1-in-37.7 towards Barnt
Green on the line between Birmingham and Worcester. The station
opened as part of the Birmingham and Gloucester Railway (later part
of the Midland Railway) in 1840. In June 1969 the station was
rebuilt with a single platform on the up (northbound) side, which
require stopping down (southbound) trains to cross to the up line
and back again after calling at Bromsgrove station. A new platform
on the down side was opened in May 1990.

The station and most trains serving it are operated by London
Midland. A small number of CrossCountry services also call
