Geocache Description:

Tämä on Mäntsälän ensimmäinen geokätkö ja sitä etsiessä voit tutustua keskustassa sijaitsevaan raivaajien ja rakentajien muistomerkkiin. Se julkistettiin vuonna 1985 Mäntsälän täyttäessä 400 vuotta.

Tämä kätkö on omistettu nykypäivän raivaajille ja rakentajille, jotka työskentelivät Kerava-Lahti -oikoradan rakennustyömaalla. Uusia rautatielinjoja rakennetaan Suomessa enää harvoin. Ratalinja ja uusi Mäntsälän rautatieasema sijaitsevat noin 1.5 km:n päässä kätköltä.

Oikorata -hanke Wikipediassa.

This is the first geocache in Mäntsälä. The Finnish name of the cache means settlers (or pioneers). When searching the cache you can see the memorial for settlers and constructors in the centre of Mäntsälä. The memorial has been published in 1985, 400th annual celebration of Mäntsälä.

The cache is devoted to modern contstructors who broke ground for "direct line" railway from Kerava to Lahti. Nowadays it is very uncommon in Finland to build new long-distance railways. New railway and station are located about 1.5 km from the cache.
