CZ: Stara Paka 1972 (verze 2)


Poznámka na úvod:
Protoze nadrazi proslo rozsahlou prestavbou behem ktere byly odstraneny veskere stage a indicie k puvodni verzi kese (ktera obdrzela krasnych 23 bodů), rozhodl jsem se kes kompletne predelat a spustit ji jako verzi c.2. Berte to i jako pozvanku na prohlidku napul opraveneho nadrazi. Vsichni doufame, ze se jeste najde trocha penez na dokonceni rekonstrukce nadrazni budovy.

Informace k odlovu keše:

Vychozi souradnice:
Stojite na miste, kde v roce 1972 vykolejil nakladni vlak (viz popis historicke udalosti dal v listingu). Pobliz je take parkoviste.
Zde najdete maly stitek se dvema trojcifernymi cisly "nnn eee". První cislo dosadte jako severni souradnice a druhe jako vychodni.
Souřadnice STAGE 1 = N 50° 30.nnn E015° 29.eee
Vratte stitek zpet presne na stejne misto a muzete vyrazit na pozici STAGE 1.

STAGE 1:
Zde najdete klic, ktery budete potřebovat pro pristup ke kesi. Bez klice nelze kes odlovit.
Jakmile máte klic, jdete z mista, kde jste nasli klic 10 kroku SZ smerem (pro ty, kdo nemaji kompas, je to smerem na nejblizsi modre zabradli). Pak se otocte o 90° doprava a jdete dalsich 12 kroku SV smerem. Meli byste byt primo u kese.
Po zalogovani nezapomente vratit klic presne na stejne misto, kde jste ho vyzvedli.

Upozornění: Jelikoz jste na frekventovanem nadrazi, nevstupujte do kolejiste (neni to vubec potreba a zamestanci drah jsou na to haklivi). Pokud je v prostoru stage rusneji (treba pred prijezdem vlaku), radeji chvilku poseckejte, nez se dopravni situace zklidni. Dobre je se pri odlovu maskovat fotakem a hrat si na pritele zeleznice a jako "lovit" zabery koleji a nadrazi.

Pokud pri odlovu ulovite i nejaky zajimavy snimek a prilozite ho k logu, budu velmi potesen.

V kesi jsou pripraveny pametni karticky pro prvnich tricet nalezcu.
V kesi pod vickem si take muzete opsat dvojici cisel, ktere budete potrebovat pro odlov bonusove kese "Vyhlidka na Paku - bonus cache (GC28JHB)".
Kese, ktere potrebujete pro ziskani vsech cisel pro bonus jsou ctyri:
1) Novopacke mosty - The bridges of Nova Paka (GC209CT)
2) Novopacky tunel - The Tunnel of Nova Paka (GC21M71)
3) Stara Paka 1972 (v.2) (GC4FJVX)
4) Valdov 1906 (GC21M5X)

Preji uspesny odlov.

Historie udalosti:
"Od te doby, co jsem byl primym svedkem toho, jak ridic elektricke soupravy c. 15 pri jizde z kopce zjistil, ze brzdy nepracuji, ani kdyz jim domlouva, a odbehl se do vlecnaku poradit s kolegou co ted, aby nas pak prisel informovat do mezaninu cinzovniho domu, kde jsme mezitim pristali, ze uz dal nejede, abychom vystoupili a nezdrzovali dopravu, nebot obraci, jezdim elektrikou co mozna nejmene."

Tak takhle zacina legendarni povidka Simka a Grossmanna "Moje jizda tramvaji".Vtipna situace, pokud se jedna o smyslenou povidku. Pokud se ale presuneme z povidky do reality a z tramvaje na zeleznici, dostava tato situace desivy ramec.

Dne 15. cervna 1972 vyjel nakladni vlak cislo 7601 z nadrazi Horka u Stare Paky smerem k nadrazi Stara Paka. Vzdalenost techto dvou stanic je po kolejich pouhych 7.5km, ale kdyz se podivame na nadmorske vysky obou stanic, je tento usek necim vyjimecny. Horka u Stare Paky jsou v nadmorske vysce 494mnm, kdezto Stara Paka v pouhych 420.244 mnm. Prevyseni 74 metru na tak kratkem useku znamena prumerny sklon trati kolem 10 promile, coz je pro vlak sklon hodne nadprumerny.
Posadka nakladniho vlaku zahy zjistila, ze rychlost vlaku podezrele vzrusta a ze ucinek brzd nestaci na zvladnuti nalozene soupravy na takto klesajici trati. Jejich bezmoc a zoufalstvi muselo byt priserne. Posadka vlaku vsak nezpanikarila a vlak neopustila. Snazila se, aby rychlost vzrustala co mozna nejmene, protoze moc dobre vedeli, ze je ceka zaverecne klesani a zatacka na viadukt ve Stare Pace, za kterym je budova nadrazi a spousta nic netusicich lidi kolem. K jejich cti budiz, ze celou cestu az do Stare Paky vytrvale houkali a snazili se tak upozornit na svuj, jiz neovladatelny vlak.

Na nadrazi ve Stare Pace si vsimli bliziciho se houkajiciho vlaku a okamzite se snazili podniknout pripravne kroky pro bezpecny prujezd nakladniho vlaku nadrazim, aby nedoslo k ohrozeni lidi. Mezitim posadka nakladniho vlaku usoudila, ze vic jiz neni v jejich silach udelat a pred vjezdem do zatacky smerem k viaduktu z vlaku vyskocila. Hrozilo totiz, ze pokud vlak pri vysoke rychlosti vykoleji pred viaduktem, nebo na nem, spadne do hlubokeho udoli.
Vlak se ale i pres vysokou rychlost na kolejich udrzel a prejel stastne pres vysoky viadukt. Uz to vypadalo nadejne, ze bez problemu projede i kolem nadrazi a podari se ho zastavit za nadrazim, ale na prvnich vyhybkach jaromerskeho shlavi doslo k vykolejeni lokomotivy, ktera tim vybocila ze smeru volne prujezdni koleje a narazila do lokomotivy pripraveneho vlaku 4580, ktery stal na sousedni koleji.
Obe lokomotivy se do sebe zaklesly a vytvorily pevnou prekazku, o ktere se zacaly tristit nakladni vozy rozjeteho vlaku. Kineticka energie byla tak obrovska, ze vozy na sebe najizdely a vrstvily se na sebe do nekolika pater, ramy vozu se ohybaly jako by byly z vosku a ne z oceli. Nekolik vozu bylo vymrsteno az k hlavni budove nadrazi, kolem ktere bylo postaveno leseni kvuli oprave strechy. Leseni se zritilo a narazem zeleznicnich vozu byl proboren i roh budovy nadrazi. Stastnou shodou okolnosti nekolik okamziku pred proborenim zdi zamestnanci drah tuto mistnost opustili.

Behem nekolika vterin se z fungujiciho nadrazi stalo srotiste znicenych vlaku a rozbiteho nebo rozsypaneho nakladu. Skody vznikly obrovske, ale neskutecnym stestim bylo, ze pri tak velke nehode neprisel nikdo o zivot. Zraneni utrpeli pouze strojvedouci a pomocnik z nakladniho vlaku, kteri si ale diky vyskoceni za jizdy zachranili zivot.

Lepsi predstavu o rozsahu tragedie ziskate z nasledujicich fotografii porizenych po nehode.

Piece of information for cache hunting:

Initial coordinates:
You are standing at the place, where in 1972 train accident happened (description of the accident you can see below). Close this place you can see a parking lot. You have to find a label with two numbers (both have three digits "nnn eee") there . First number represents the north coordinate and second the east one.
Stage 1 = N 50° 30.nnn E015° 29.eee

Stage 1:
You have to find a key, which you will need for access for the cache. Without this key, you can not find the cache.
As soon as you reach this key, you have to walk 10 steps from the place, where you found the key in northwest direction (if you don't have a compass, you just need to follow the blue handrail). Then you have to turn on 90° right and then continue walking next 12 steps in northeastern direction. In this moment you have reach the cache.
After your logging don't forget carefully return the key exactly on the same place, where you found it.

Warning - you are at the busy railway station. You don't have to move between rails. In case there is some rush close to the stage 1 (after the train arrival for example), it's better to wait a moment. I recommend you to act as "railway lover" and mask yourself with camera.

There are memory cards for the first thirty finders. You can also copy two numbers which are under the cover of cache and use them for the bonus cache "Vyhlidka na Paku - bonus cache (GC28JHB)".
I wish you good luck!

HISTORY:
It was 15th of June, 1972. The cargo train number 7601 departed from the station Horka u Stare Paky and continued in the direction to Stara Paka. A distance between those two stations is just 7,5 km, but there is quite big difference in the altitude. Station Horka is high 494 meters above sea level. Stara Paka Station is just 420,244 meters high. The degree of incline on this short passage is 74 meters – quite big for a train.
Soon the crew of the train realized that the speed of the train is rapidly raising and the brakes can’t manage the weigh of the cargo. Their hopelessness was huge. The crew however didn’t leave the train. They tried to limit the increasing speed because they knew that a final descent, a viaduct and a station full of people is coming soon. They hooted the whole time because they tried to warn about this uncontrollable train.
In the Stara Paka Station people noticed the hooting train and immediately tried to limited a danger. In the meanwhile the crew realized that there is nothing they can do and left the train before it reached the viaduct. There was a danger that the train derail on the viaduct and fall down into the deep walley.
The train however passed the viaduct without derailment. For a moment it seemed hopefully, but on the first switch in the station the train derailed and crashed into the locomotive of train number 4580 on the next rail. Vagons of the cargo train started to smashed. A kinetic energy was so huge that vagons started to pile into layers! Also the building of station was damaged by some vagons, which were catapulted by this huge crash. Luckily nobody in the building was harmed.
During the few minutes the station became a mixture of destroyed trains, vagons and spilled cargo. It was incredible that nobody died . Only two men, who jumped from the train, were hurt.
For your better imagination you can look at some photos made after this accident.
