This cache has been archived.

Dalesman: This cache has been in need of care and maintenance for some time and as the owner has not responded to my note I am archiving it.

Guidelines:**You are responsible for occasional visits to your cache to maintain proper working order, especially when someone reports a problem with the cache (missing, damaged, wet, etc.). You may temporarily disable your cache to let others know not to search for it until you have a chance to fix the problem. This feature is to allow you a reasonable amount of time - normally a few weeks - in which to check on your cache. If a cache is not being maintained, or has been temporarily disabled for an unreasonable length of time, we may archive the listing.**

Geocache Description:

This cache belongs to the SideTracked series and is not designed to take you to somewhere with a breath taking view. Its a distraction for the weary traveller, but anyone else can go and find it too. The cache was difficult to place, because of saturation rules and it not being allowed on Railway property.

Pontefract Tanshelf railway station is the most central station in the town of Pontefract and serves Pontefract Races, the racecourse located just down the street from the station. In the days of coal mining in the Pontefract area, the station served the needs of the local workforce with regular and frequent services timed for the beginning and the end of mining shifts. The station was opened by Metro on 12 May 1992.
