We have Motorway Mayhem. We have A-Road Anarchy (cos there aren’t many Motorways in Wales!). But what about public transport users? SideTracked Caches are intended to provide quick Cache-and-dashes at Train Stations.

Hazelwell railway station was a railway station on the Camp Hill Line in Birmingham. It was built in 1903, between the existing Kings Heath and Lifford stations.
The station closed in 1941, when passenger services were withdrawn from the line due to "wartime economy measures", and was not reopened. The line remained open for freight and is also used for some longer distance passenger services.

[Old question for ‘Z’ for those who are interested, personally I think it was a much better question, but you have to work with what you have available. On the north east side of the bridge is an access gate down to the old station with a safety information sign, on which is a grid reference: SP aaaaa bbbbb, add together the 5 numbers in a and in b (each set should give the same result), this is Z]
