About SideTracked

We have Motorway Mayhem. We have A-Road Anarchy (cos there aren’t many Motorways in Wales!). But what about public transport users? SideTracked Caches are intended to provide quick Cache-and-dashes at Train Stations.

It is hoped this idea will spread across the country in the same way as the MMs….but if hiding one PLEASE BE SENSIBLE and remember that in this day and age, public transport is under greater scrutiny than ever before, so, although these caches should be quick and easy grabs, PLEASE don’t place a Cache where it could cause alarm!!!

For more information on SideTracked Caches, please visit SideTracked

Sidetracked : Paignton

From Wikipedia ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paignton_railway_station )

The railway to Paignton was built by the Dartmouth and Torbay Railway, opening to passengers on 2 August 1859. Goods facilities were added on 1 April 1861. The original goods shed now serves as the station's ticket office.

The Dartmouth and Torbay Railway was always operated by the South Devon Railway and was amalgamated with it on 1 January 1872. This was only short lived as the South Devon Railway was in turn amalgamated into the Great Western Railway on 1 February 1876.

On 11 July 1904 GWR road motor services started running from here to Torquay, in competition with new electric tramways.

The line from Paignton to Kingswear was sold to the Dart Valley Railway on 30 December 1972 which operated another nearby heritage railway at Buckfastleigh. An independent station alongside the main platform, known as Queens Park, was opened to serve the Kingswear trains. This included a shed for the railway's engines and carriages

The cache is in the nearby Victoria Park -  take the road opposite the old picture house (now the offices for the Paignton - Kingswear steam line) and carry along past the multi-storey car park into the park.

(B.Y.O.P. - Bring your own pen)

Quick find. Logbook is kind of hard to get out because it seems to have got wet sometimes.
