The solution to this puzzle is a set of geospatial coordinates (longitude and latitude) in the form:
N DDº MM.mmm’ W DDº MM.mmm’
Where “DD” is degrees and “MM.mmm” is minutes (in thousandths). These coordinates are the solution to the mystery cache Puzzle Solving 101 – Lesson 2: Tactics (GCYXZ2). (This cache has been archived—the puzzle-solving lesson on the cache page is still visible, but the cache can no longer be found and logged.)
Note: This puzzle differs from the online puzzle because the online puzzle only works in a web browser, not in print form.
On the left and right are names of actors that have starred in famous movies set partially or fully on railway trains. For each actor on the left, draw a railroad line straight from that actor’s dot to the dot on the right next to the two other actors that appear in the same train movie. When the connections are complete, read the numbers touching a line in order from the top-most number down to the bottom to reveal the coordinates. (The hint at the bottom lists the titles for all of the movies.)
Concatenate the ten digits (which may include leading and/or trailing zeroes) of the north minutes and west minutes together in left-to-right order to get the password to unlock the solution page. For example, if the solution is North 26º 01.234′ West 80º 56.789′ then the password would be 0123456789.
