Geocache Description:


Please recall, to claim a smiley, you must sign the physical log. 

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. 

I was driving by en route to another cache...and was suprised to find that there wasn't already a cache here. Well, now there is!

From Wikipedia:

Lincolnville GO Station is a train and bus station in the GO Transit network located in Whitchurch-Stouffville, ON. Lincolnville is the northeastern terminus of train service on the Stouffville line. 

The station opened on September 2, 2008 after some delay. The station was referred to by the provisional name of Stouffville North before adopting the Lincolnville name and LCGO code partway through construction. The station's code has since been changed to LI after a system-wide re-coding in late 2018.

Lincolnville station was built to relieve the line's previous terminus, which could not expand its parking and had limited bus interchange capabilities. Constructed next to the existing Stouffville layover facility at 10th Line and Bethesda Road, Lincolnville station cost $5.5m and extended passenger service approximately 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) further from Union Station in Toronto. The station's park-and-ride catchment includes much of the municipality of Uxbridge, and it is seen a precursor to eventual GO Train service to the townsite of Uxbridge proper.

Historically, Lincolnville is the name of a hamlet which was located at the corner of Bloomington Road and Highway 47 (Old Concession 10 Road), divided between the townships of Uxbridge to the east and Whitchurch to the west.

The cache is a micro, and can't hold that much more than the log. Please use stealth when retrieving...and don't forget - you need to sign the physical log to claim a smiley.
