‘Nazi Gold’ Found On Missing Ghost Train In Poland

We’re not sure if it’s the prospect of Nazi gold or generally the term ‘ghost train’ which makes us most excited about a breaking story out of Poland, but nonetheless it’s got our attention.

According to the BBC, a law firm in South-West Poland has said it has been contacted by two men who claim to have discovered a train full of gold bullion believed to have disappeared some 70 years ago at the end of World War Two, with the pair asking for 10 per cent figure for the haul.

Legend has it that the armoured train carrying precious gold and gems entered a tunnel near a medieval castle near the city of Walbrzych in 1945 as the Soviet soldiers loomed and never came out. So might the find be genuine?

It’s certainly not something authorities are ruling out. Marika Tokarska, an official for Walbrzych district council, said of the development: "Lawyers, the army, the police and the fire brigade are dealing with this. The area has never been excavated before and we don't know what we might find.”

There’s no great secret that Adolf Hitler and his generals used trains to ferry across loot from various cities towards the end of World War Two in an effort to get the treasure and valuable artworks back to Berlin. Though in the case of this mystery train, nobody knows where it was headed or of course where it ended up.

Lost Nazi Gold. Ghost Trains. Just add a bullwhip and Harrison Ford could be dusting off the hat again.
