Geocache Description:

Sidetracked caches are designed for geocachers  who travel by train and want a quick cache and grab between connections.

The cache is a disguised magnetic placed just outside of Tamworth Train Station and can easily be done if you have a spare few minutes between connections or as a drive by (20min free parking available). The cache contains just a log so bring your own pen and replace carefully as this is a busy area with commuters and cars waiting to pick muggles up.

Tamworth Train Station is located just outside (5minute walk) of the town centre in Tamworth, Staffordshire. Tamworth lies on the route between Birmingham New Street in the West Midlands and Nottingham in the East Midlands. The West Coast Train Line and Cross Country tracks cross here so commuters can travel North, East, South and West from this 4 platform station (known as low level for WCML and high level for CC). Trains to London run frequently from Tamworth and the station itself is run by the London-Midland company. The original station opened in 1839 and demolished in 1961 and was particularly important station for Royal Mail due to its crossing of the WCML and Cross Country tracks. A new station was built in 1962 and recent work has seen Tamworth Train Station become more modernised to meet the demands of just under 1 million commuters every year. Parking is available at the station for free in the 20minute waiting bays. Please park responsibly. Muggles are frequently passing so you may need to sit for a while until a gap appears.
