About Side Tracked

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 Railway Stations.

Shenstone station was opened in 1884 as part of the extension of the line from Birmingham through Sutton Coldfield to Lichfield. The line was electrified in the early 1990s, and forms part of the Birmingham Cross-city line, a busy commuter line that runs between Lichfield and Redditch. Shenstone is the poorest served of all the intermediate stops on the line, but still has one train every 30 minutes in each direction. Unlike many of the stations on the line which were rebuilt during electrification, this station retains its original buildings.

The cache is a short walk from the station, and requires crossing a road that can be busy at times. The area can be popular with dog walkers, so stealth may be required.
