Geocache Description:

READ the clue, first. SideTracking. Enjoy.

From Wikipedia:

It opened in 1966 as one of the original stations of the Bloor-Danforth subway line. 

Chester station was opened on February 25, 1966, along with the rest of the first phase of the Bloor-Danforth line which operated between Keele and Woodbine stations. 

Chester station has one entrance which is located on Chester Avenue just north of Danforth Avenue. A walkway leads to the station from a nearby street to allow access to the station from the west side. The nearby communities that are served by this station are GreektownWithrow ParkRiverdale, and Broadview North. In addition to serving these communities, Chester station is commonly used to access local street festivals such as the Taste of the Danforth.

Although the station is rated as high priority in the requirement for a second exit, Chester is the only one left on the east end of the Bloor-Danforth line where design work and consultation has yet to be done.

The station was designed to be serviced with side platforms as it mainly serves the surrounding neighbourhood. As it is the only station in the system that is not connected to a regular bus or streetcar route it is one of the least used subway stations in Toronto.


Added a clue as this is generally a high traffic area and a high level of stealth will be required to grab the cache without being seen. Please keep the cache well-hidden...Room only for a log. BYOP. For reasons too long-winded to explain, you need to USE THE CLUE to find the final.
