Geocache Description:

This cache was placed on Monday 10th August 2015, on the 8th anniversary of the SideTracked series. It is the third SideTracked Camberley that has been placed, to our knowledge at least, and we hope that it will prove secure and lasting, and that there will also be many further anniversaries of this excellent series.  

It is a quick multi which you could attempt if you have a spare few minutes before catching your train. The co-ordinates take you to the front entrance of the station where you will find the answers to the first question.  You will then just need to walk around the station, on both sides of the track, keeping your eyes open for the other answers. You will be able to gather this information without having to go through any of the station barriers.

Camberley Railway Station was completely rebuilt in 1975. The station, and all trains serving it, is operated by South West Trains. It was opened in 1878 by the London and South Western Railway (when it was known as Camberley & York Town, becoming Camberley in 1923), expanding fifteen years later. The route was electrified (on the third rail system at 650 volts DC) by the Southern Railway (Great Britain) on 1 January 1939.

Camberley is served by trains between Ascot and Guildford via Aldershot. On Mondays to Fridays, there are three trains per day that continue beyond Ascot to London Waterloo in the morning peak period, two returning from London in the evening. At other times, passengers are required to change at either Ascot or Ash Vale in order to reach London.

Question 1:  How many bike rack hoops in the brick shelter adjacent to the main entrance? Answer = A

Question 2: How many bike rack hoops are there in the cage? Answer = B.

Question 3: What is the missing number (2nd digit) on the sign under the footbridge, 2C/14A? Answer = C

Question 4: How many platforms are there? Answer = D

Question 5: How many car parking ticket machines are there in the car park on the south side of the station?  Answer = E

Question 6: Viewed from the car park on the south side of station, how many pairs of double doors open onto the platform from the ticket hall? Answer = F

The checksum for A to F is 20

The cache can be found at N 51 20.(B-C)A(A-B)  W 000 44.(Dx3)(F-D-E)(F+A)
