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.

Henley-in-Arden is a railway station serving the small Warwickshire town of Henley-in-Arden, England. It is on the North Warwickshire Line between Birmingham and Stratford-upon-Avon.
The current station was opened in 1908 with the North Warwickshire Line, which then was an important main line connecting Birmingham with Cheltenham via Stratford-upon-Avon. The new station was one of the most prestigious on the new line, and was provided with three platforms. One of which was for trains terminating from Birmingham, and for a short period, trains terminating from the old branch line, until it closed.
About the cache
You are looking for a cache hidden a bit further than a stones throw of the station entrance. Parking is available on the road near to the given co-ordinates, but is not recommended as it may be too near to the station approach or if you’re careful, at the station car park.
Use the following information to find the co-ordinates for the final cache:
Walk south along the road a few yards, you will see an electricity sub station. Along with the emergency contact and warning signs, one states that it’s on Station Approach and gives a number *ABCD*
Walk up Station Approach, how many parallel parking bays are there on your right before you reach the main car park? *E*
On the outside of the station, adjacent to the car park, how many brown wooden board covered windows are there? *F* (not individual pieces of wood, but the number of windows they cover)
At the entrance to the station, there are some information boards, with numbers that follow ‘HNL’ in the corner of the frame, the highest of these numbers? *G*
On platform 2, how many benches are uncovered? *H*
The cache is at: N52° (H-B)(A+E).(F-E)(F-G)(B+H) W001° (A+B)(C-B).(G+A)(C-G)(D+H)
