WWII tunnel found in hunt for Nazi gold train

A World War II era railway tunnel has been unearthed by authorities at the train's rumored location.
Thought to be carrying billions of dollars worth of gold and other valuables, the existence of the long lost locomotive is looking increasingly likely with officials now convinced that it is going to be found.

Sources in Poland indicate that a hidden underground tunnel has been discovered within the hills of Lower Silesia, the region in which the train was thought to have been hidden away more than 60 years ago as the Soviets were advancing on Nazi-occupied Poland at the end of the war.
Described by the Walbrzych District Council as a "railway tunnel with a multi-level complex of underground corridors from the days of World War II", the subterranean railroad is rumored to stretch over a distance of 2km - more than enough space to hide the fabled gold train.

The two men who originally reported that they'd uncovered the train's location, Andreas Richter and Piotr Koper, last week came forward in a bid to dispel rumors that the whole thing was a hoax by appearing on national TV with a radar image that allegedly shows the actual locomotive itself.

Now with the discovery of the tunnel it might not be long before official confirmation of the train's existence is announced and efforts can begin in earnest to find out what might lie inside it.

That's a good point.  I'm sure there are a number of lawyers ing their commercials to help the survivors get their fair share of the gold.  Ownership will probably be nearly impossible to proven.  I doubt the Nazis labeled where they got the gold from.  Then again they were Germans.  We tend to be a bit anal at times.

Well, we find out in a few days. Either have something cool to talk about, or lay it to rest, for now..

i doubt it'll be particularly exciting. it'll probably be a class 52 Kriegslok, I expect, and with more than 7,000 of them built it wouldn't be particularly rare or exotic.

i live near this town (Walbrzych) Explorers build metal fence around place where test drilling will be held. But there are scientist's opinions from Metallurgy and Mining Academy there is not any train.

Is it that train where they think the Amber Room is on?? I really hope there is something there to be found - it would be quite amazing. But as always, one is doubtful. It would be really great if they found something in The Money Pit as well, but I don't hold my breath. There has been so many ups and downs with that place so people don't know what to think anymore.

Would be interesting if it turned out to be a long-forgotten research center full of some of those very interesting secret aircraft projects the Reich was full of at the end of the war; how about a Focke-Wulf Triebflügel ? or some of those ramjet interceptors. Lippisch P.13a Certainly a lot more interesting than gold and Art and things.

There was a lot of interesting stuff on paper, but my understanding - and it may be wrong - is that many of the design studies were busy-work to keep the younger engineers from being drafted and wasted on the Eastern Front; the German airplane makers understood that there was going to be an 'after the war', and that keeping their talent intact (and alive!) was necessary.
