Geocache Description:

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.

The cache is located at:-
