The cache is not at the listed co-ordinates. To obtain the final co-ordinates for the cache, you must solve the puzzle below.
Unlike most SideTracked caches, this cache will not take you to a Train Station. This is because Newtownards Railway Station is sadly no more. The co-ordinates at the top of the page however, will take you a footbridge which went over the old Belfast & County Down Railway Line. Trains which ran under this bridge were either heading to, or coming from Donaghadee.
Near this bridge was the goods loading area. See photo below:-
Unfortunately, the Newtownards to Donaghadee railway line closed in 1950 and excluding some road and foot bridges, little evidence of its glory days remains today.
More information about the Belfast & County Down Railway can be found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belfast_and_County_Down_Railway.
