Off the rails - meaning?

Followers 2

Recommended Posts

I've seen a few cache listings with this title (rather like "off your trolley" and "motorway mayhem" but I can't seem to see one with a description of what it means. My reason for asking is that I have had an idea for a series of caches along the path of a disused railway and wondered if I ought to be classing them under this title or not to keep things neat!

There are or have been at least two "End of the Line" caches, the ones I know were located on or near bridge abutments where the actual bridge had gone - and so the line could go no further! :)

The variation in one case was that part one of the cache was on one side of the river and the other a long way round if you were not amphibious. :lol:

Perhaps a bit late, but there is a series just started up in Worcestershire called "SideTracked...." by schnarff & bikermel76, our local one is GC15082 but there are others. Its like the "Motorway Mayhem" series but based on using stations.


Good luck with it anyway,

There are some "off the rails" caches around here where the theme seems to be Garden Centres - I'm not sure I understand... :huh::huh:


I saw those when doing my looking-up - couldn't quite work it out either!


I saw the Sidetracked one in Stratford (but unfortunately didn't get round to doing it), however mine aren't necessarily near a station so I decided not to go with that one.


Did a bit of scouting yesterday and found a couple of locations. I'm probably going to go for 3 in the series plus a final bonus involving collecting some info from the first 3 to complete... :huh:
