Please read carefully! This is Safari cache, known also as reverse virtual. The object on the given coordinates is only the example. While visit to the coordinates is recommended, it is neither required nor enough for logging the Safari. In order to log, you need to find other object that matches the description and post its coordinates together with your self-made photo. The logs that doesn't fulfill that conditions will be deleted.

Have you ever seen this phenomenon? There's a rail track, but... it doesn't lead anywhere! The rail ends as suddenly as it began. Sometimes it could be a part of rail infrastructure, but today it's only a forgotten relic. 

This is the case of the object on the listed coordinates. It's the old warehouse, and the rail is starting from its doors but... it suddenly ends a few meter further, on the bridge. 

Find another example of rail to nowhere, post the coordinates and the photo in your log.

Heute sind wir in Nürnberg auf diese ehemalige Bahnstrecke gestoßen. Sie endet heute vor einem Gebäudezugang. Früher war dies der Gleisanschluss zum ehemaligen AEG-Hausgeräte-Werk an der Fürther Straße. Das andere Ende der Strecke trifft auf die noch heute betriebene Ringbahn.
