Geocache Description:

Mangapps Railway Museum is a privately owned working railway and museum established on a farm at Burnham-On-Crouch, Essex. It features a ¾ mile standard gauge passenger carrying line, with restored stations, signal boxes and ancillary equipment removed from various sites throughout East Anglia and beyond. To operate the line the Railway has 18 steam and diesel locomotives and over 80 carriages and wagons, some of considerable historic and technical interest. To complement the working Railway, the Museum has a collection of smaller railway relics which is one of the largest of its kind in Britain. This collection contains historic items connected with every aspect of railway operation and has a particular bias towards the railways of East Anglia and Railway signalling - in fact the signalling collection is believed to be the largest on public display in Britain.

This geocache takes you on a journey through the unassuming countryside to discover a hidden railway! Firstly.. this cache is NOT accessible from the museum. You must walk to it along public footpaths. Secondly, the cache is not placed on private land owned by the museum. It is hidden on the footpath, so please don't enter any private land.

You can approach this cache from 4 directions along footpaths, but I have added waypoints for the most scenic route with the easiest parking. It is a regular size, so there is plenty of room for swapables and trackables. It also contains one of my "infinite" logbooks. Be wary of the final location... there is barbed wire and hawthorn branches. If you have kids or dogs, please don't send them in to retrieve. Also be aware of any potential agricultural vehicles in the vicinity and don't act suspicious infront of any farmers! Being discrete is the only hope for larger caches. But ultimately... enjoy the walk!
