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. It's a distraction for the weary traveller, but anyone else can go and find it too. More Information can be found on the SideTracked Series website at

Opened in 1857, Westerfield Station is a tiny, little-used station on the East Suffolk line from Ipswich to Lowestoft.  In 1877, the Felixstowe branch line was opened with the junction lying a short distance east of Westerfield Station.  Originally a tramway was planned from Ipswich to Felixstowe but George Tomline proposed, instead, a proper railway line running from Westerfield to Felixstowe.  This means that to travel due East from Ipswich to Felixstowe, trains actually leave Ipwich in a westerly direction, looping around the north of the town before turning east again.

Despite regular services stopping at the station, located in a small village and with no parking, the station does not have a high number of passenger numbers.
