You are looking for a black magnetic nano
This is a busy location and some stealth will probably be required.
No special access required - street location.
Please ensure that you replace the cache exactly where you find it.
Already had one DNF and replaced it only to find that the original was still there but in a different location and both caches were being logged
Side Tracked caches have become a nationwide series of caches for public transport users. They are intended to provide quick cache-and-dashes at or nearby railway stations. Caches can be found close to stations of the national rail network and well as heritage railways.
West Ealing station is on Brunels old Great Western Railway.
It is serviced by the Heathrow Connect service from Heathrow to Paddington and also by the Greenford to Paddington local service.
Trains run on a 30 minute service on both lines.
The station is unfortunately closed on Sundays.
The cache location was built as an hotel in 1894 and is one of the oldest pubs in Ealing. It became purely a pub in the 1940's and then became a "pub with rooms" in 2011.
Ho Chi Minh the North Vietnamese leader worked here as a kitchen porter in 1914.
The garden behind the pub originally held tennis courts and a bowling green and even now is the largest pub garden in London (probably the largest in any city in the UK)
The cache is a magnetic nano and only contains a log book
