Geocache Description:

A quick roadside cache placed at the bottom of the former approach to Montgomery Station.


 

About SideTracked We have Motorway Mayhem. We have A-Road Anarchy (cos there aren’t many Motorways in Wales!). But what about public transport users? SideTracked Caches are intended to provide quick Cache-and-dashes at Train Stations. SideTracked started at Evesham station on August 10th 2007, placed by schnarff & bikermel76. It took a while to get started, but is now spreading across the country! It is hoped this idea will spread across the country in the same way as the MMs….but if hiding one PLEASE BE SENSIBLE and remember that in this day and age, public transport is under greater scrutiny than ever before, so, although these caches should be quick and easy grabs,
PLEASE don’t place a Cache where it could cause alarm!!! (Particularly, please ensure that you aware of the new rules of 04/09/08 before placing a new cache)

The Oswestry and Newtown Railway (O&NR) was authorised in 1855, and opened in stages. The final section, between Welshpool and Abermule, opened on 10 June 1861, and one of the stations opened that day was Montgomery.

The station was 40 1⁄4 miles from Whitchurch, between Forden and Abermule and was situated more than 1 mile from the town of Montgomery.  It had two platforms which were slightly staggered, and the station building was on the northern side; there were also a signal box and goods shed.

In June 1864, the O&NR amalgamated with several other companies to form the Cambrian Railways. As part of the 1923 Grouping, the Cambrian amalgamated with the Great Western Railway.

The station was closed by British Railways on 14 June 1965.
