About SideTracked Caches
This cache belongs to the SideTracked series. It is not designed to take you to a magical place with a breath taking view. It's a distraction for the weary traveller, but anyone else can go and find it too. More Information can be found at the SideTracked Website

I love the Sidetracked series in the UK and thought I would introduce it to the UAE. So here we are the first Dubai SideTracked cache.
The Al Rashidiya Metro station is located near the Rashidiya Park, south of the Dubai International Airport, it is in Zone 5 on the Red line.  It is the end of the red line to the North.  The Station was one of the first to open on 9th September 2009.
In 2005 the city of Dubai chose the company Aedas to perform the proposed metro line in the city, the first system of this kind in the UAE. The company, launched its teams numerous architectural projects, design and structures station auxiliaries were conducted in Singapore, the design of the tanks fell Aedas Birmingham and London on 3D computer modelling support.
The design and construction of the entire system, including trains and railway systems, has been assumed by the consortium of Mitsubishi Durl JT Metro JV:-Obayashi-Kajima-Yapi Merkezi.
The Red Line of Dubai Metro has two power stations, Al Rashidiya and Jebel Ali. Each "deposit" has a control centre to check individual train system and security stations systems such as air conditioning, security, sound system and sophisticated electronic subsystems. It also includes workshops for carrying out maintenance and other workshops for washing and cleaning of trains.
Al Rashidiya Station has parking spaces for rail, air conditioned room for 64 units. The choice of Al Rashidiya as one of the deposits was made for several reasons, among them that is in one of the end points of the route underground, its strategic location on the Old Emirates Road.
You are looking for a micro not on station property. The difficulty reflects the cache location. Please do use stealth this is a high muggle area. Thanks
