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
Hounslow Station on the Hounslow Loop Line, is in the London Borough of Hounslow, in west London, and is in Travelcard Zone 5. The station and all trains serving it are operated by South Western Railway.
The London and South Western Railway opened the calling point on 1 February 1850 on completion of the bridges and embankments at Isleworth station. A temporary station had opened as "Hounslow" 400 metres northeast of the present Isleworth station on 22 August 1849 to allow a service to run until the loop was connected and the line complete.
There is an industrial estate built on the old coal yard where the sidings used to be. if you look up the track you can see the bridges are wide enough for the extra tracks.
The cache is places about 18 inches above ground level and shouldnt be to much of a challenge to find. Please put it back so it isnt obvious.
