SideTracked - Crediton Traditional Geocache

This cache has been archived.

1+one: Not sure about a hole but the cache seems to have migrated or has been taken, either way I am archiving this one as we have moved away from the area. Hopefully someone else will put a sidetracked cache here sometime soon.

Geocache Description:

About The Cache

The cache is just outside of Crediton Railway station, you can approach by rail, car, foot or bike. You can park right by the cache at off peak times with care but the station car park is right next to the cache so you would be better using that. The cache itself is small, you will need a pen and probably tweezers. Stealth will be required if people are arriving at or leaving the station. Please replace as found. No spoiler logs or pictures please.

About Crediton Station

The station, designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, was opened by the Exeter and Crediton Railway on 12 May 1851. The line to Barnstaple was then opened by the North Devon Railway on 1 August 1854. After 1 November 1865 additional London and South Western Railway trains ran through the station going towards Okehampton.

The signal box which controls the level crossing was put into use on the 2 June 1875, and the footbridge built in 1878. It now controls the entire Tarka Line from just north of the Cowley Bridge Junction with the Bristol to Exeter line, all the way to Barnstaple, although most of the line uses the No Signalman Token Remote (NSTR) system. Under this method of operation only a single train is allowed into each section, so not much signal control is actually required.

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
