Geocache Description:

Mickle Trafford: Although the station was opened for the use by passengers between 1889 and 1951, when it was closed and subsequently demolished.

Although all traces of the station have now been removed, the site remains an active operational location, as the Mid-Cheshire Line passenger trains from Manchester via Stockport and Altrincham join the main Chester - Warrington - Manchester Piccadilly line at this point and Mickle Trafford signal box remains in use to work the junction between the two routes.

The route to Dee Marsh has long since closed and is now a cycle track with lots of caches placed along it.

The cache can be found alongside the bridge that supports the mainline and the branch to Mouldsworth

You are looking for a small box in a camouflage bag that has space for TB’s and swaps.
