Search For Fabled Nazi Gold Train Is A Bust: “There May Be A Tunnel… But There Is No Train”

goldSeveral months ago a couple of amatuer explorers in Poland thought they had finally found the location of the fabled Nazi gold train (used to ferry away the Reich’s ill-gotten gains) and the Polish government even sent military teams to start digging it up because it was believed to be hidden in secret railway tunnels some 30 feet underground.

It’s no secret that the Nazis stole millions of dollars worth of art, gold jewelry and personal belongings of the millions of people who were eventually sent to one of their many concentration camps across northern Europe. What does remain a secret are the whereabouts of the fabled Nazi gold train, which according to local legend was used to ferry away the Reich’s riches at the end of World War II.

Several months ago a couple of amatuer explorers in Poland thought they had finally found the location of the train and the Polish government even sent military teams to start digging it up because it was believed to be hidden in secret railway tunnels some 30 feet underground.

But as the New York Times reports, the hunt for the train may be a bust:

“There may be a tunnel,” said Janusz Madej, the head of the scientific team, “but there is no train.”

The Krakow University team of geologists and engineers surveyed the site in November using magnetic and gravitation methods, Mr. Madej said at a news conference. The examination revealed some anomalies in the ground, he said, but they are no more than about eight feet below the surface, while the train was supposed to be 30 feet underground.
