Geocache Description:

SideTracking in Toronto.


From Wikipedia:

Donlands opened in 1966 as part of the original segment of the Bloor-Danforth line, between Keele Station in the west and Woodbine Station in the east. Originally only a small structure covered the stairs and escalator. The current building was constructed in the early 1980s and the fare-collection area was relocated from the concourse up to street level, which also brought the bus bays within the fare-paid zone.

On August 6, 1997, a pile of rubber pads being stored in the wye between Donlands station and Greenwood Yard caught fire. It was the TTC's first major subway incident after the 1995 Russell Hill subway accident. The fire shut down the Bloor-Danforth line from Broadview eastward; two thousand passengers had to be evacuated from a pair of trains and nearly 50 were taken to hospital for smoke inhalation. Over 200 emergency personnel responded to the fire.

Difficulty rating refers to amount of stealth required to grab the cache without being noticed. Magnetic. BYOP.

FTF on April 9: Catapocalypse, yellow.warbler and Bouffe.
