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. Its a distraction for the weary traveller, but anyone else can go and find it too. More Information can be found at the SideTracked Website. Abermule station was situated on the Cambrian Railway (CR) main line that linked Aberystwyth and Whitchurch. Abermule station opened on 14 August 1860 and was located to the east of the Newtown and Welshpool Road (the B4386) and to the south of the Kerry Road (the B4368). The CR main line was mostly single track but at Abermule there was a passing loop so the station had two platforms. Whilst Ellesmere, Oswestry, Welshpool and Llanidloes received unexpectedly large and architecturally memorable stations, at the minor roadside station of Abermule the buildings were decidedly modest. The main facilities were on the up platform (Whitchurch direction). They consisted of a single-storey timber building under a hipped roof with a recessed waiting area. Inside the building were a booking hall, ladies’ waiting room with WC, a lamp room and a luggage room. To the north-east of the station building, adjacent to the level crossing, were two railway houses. They were two-storey brick-built structures with pitched roofs, one of which had ground-floor canted bays abutting the platform. Towards the south-west end of the up platform there was a waiting shelter that included a gentlemen’s WC.
