Geocache Description:


Rūjienas mazbānīša perons

LAT: Slēpni veido maza izmēra plastmasas iepakojums ar rakstīšanas blociņu iekšā.. Slēpņa saturs ir nodrošināts pret apkārtējās vides iedarbību – tas ietīts slēgtā plastmasas maisiņā. Slēpnim NAV pievienots rakstāmais, tas jāņem līdzi pašam/pašai! Slēpnis paslēpts netālu no agrākās Rūjienas šaursliežu dzelzceļa stacijas, kur mūsdienās redzams saglabājies perons. Pati stacijas ēka iznīcināta Otrā pasaules kara laikā.

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.
