Geocache Description:

The Beginning

The first railway to reach Oswestry, in 1848, was a branch off the Shrewsbury and Chester Railway, which ran to Oswestry from a junction located at Gobowen. This railway was eventually taken over by the Great Western Railway in 1854.

The Cambrian Heritage Railways are a heritage railway company, trust and society based at both Llynclys and in Oswestry in its newly restored railway station, Shropshire, Western England. Formed after the 2009 merger of the Cambrian Railways Society and the Cambrian Railways Trust, it aims to reinstate the infrastructure required to operate trains from Gobowen to Llynclys Junction (for Pant), and to Blodwel.


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. 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!!!

The cache is a magnetic tube. Please be very careful retrieving and hiding the cache back as its a very busy place with loads of muggles about.

Muggles Beware of Muggles!
