Geocache Description:


Valkas mazbānīša caurteka

LAT: Slēpni veido maza izmēra plastmasas iepakojums ar rakstīšanas blociņu iekšā. Slēpnim NAV pievienots rakstāmais, tas jāņem līdzi pašam/pašai! Slēpnis paslēpts pie vienas no iespaidīgākajām dzelzceļa caurtekām agrākajā šaursliežu dzelzceļa līnijā starp Valku un Rūjienu.

ENG: Cache consists of little plastic packing with logbook in it. The cache does NOT have anything to write with (pen, pencil etc.), so you have to take your own before you visit this cache! Cache is hidden at one of the most impressive railway culverts in former narrow gauge railway line between Valka and Rūjiena.

LAT: Šaursliežu dzelzceļa līnija starp Valku un Rūjienu bija pirmā šaursliežu dzelzceļa līnija Latvijas teritorijā. Tā tika atklāta 1897.gadā un tika ekspluatēta līdz 1944.gadam, kad Vācijas armija iznīcināja lielu daļu (tiltus, caurtekas, stacijas) dzelzceļa infrastruktūras šajā līnijā armijas atkāpšanās laikā. Vietējie iedzīvotāji stāsta, ka vācieši pat esot uzaruši šo līniju, lai padomju karaspēks to nespētu izmantot. Pēc Otrā pasaules kara tā vairs nekad netika izmantota, tikai ļoti maza šīs līnijas daļa Valkā mūsdienās darbojas (pāršūta uz platsliežu platumu). Šī dzelzceļa līnija reiz bijusi vidusdaļa daudz garākai šaursliežu dzelzceļa līnijai starp Pļaviņām Latvijā un Pērnavu Igaunijā. Joprojām ekspluatētais mazbānītis starp Gulbeni un Alūksni ir pēdējā saglabājusies šī dzelzceļa daļa, kas joprojām tiek izmantota satiksmei.

ENG: Narrow gauge railway line between Valka and Rūjiena was the first narrow gauge railway line in territory of Latvia. It was opened in 1897 and was exploited until 1944, when German army destroyed many parts (bridges, culverts, stations) of this railway line during army withdrawal. Local inhabitants are telling that Germans even ploughed this line with plough, so Soviet army could not use it. It was never exploited again after WWII, only very small part of this line is working nowadays in Valka. This railway line once was a middle part of much longer narrow gauge railway line between Pļaviņas (Latvia) and Pērnava/Parnu (Estonia). Narrow gauge line between Alūksne and Gulbene is the only one part left of this railway line, which is still exploited for passenger traffic.
