About SideTracked

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.

For more information on SideTracked Caches, please visit SideTracked

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The station closed in 1941, when passenger services were withdrawn from the line due to "wartime economy measures", and was not reopened.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.

About the cache

You are looking for a magnetic nano cache, the cache is not at the listed coordinates. To locate the cache, use the following information:

The cache is located at N522 (Y-T+S) . (V+T) (Y+S+S) (X-Z+V)  W001o 5 (Y-T) . (V-S) (W-T) (X-U-Y-S)

The bridge number, painted in yellow on the north side of the bridge; S T U 

The number of arches over the old disused foot bridge; V

The number of reflective bollards on the north side of the road; W

The number of reflective bollards on the south side of the road; X

The Bathroom shop on the west end of the bridge has a designer with how many letters in their name?; Y

On the north east side of the bridge is new, steel access gate down to the old station, count the spikes on top of the 2 sections (don’t include the gate posts/support posts, just the spikes) and add 2; Z

[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]
