Researchers uncover tunnel in missing gold train hunt

Treasure hunters seeking the train – rumoured to have been hidden by Nazis fleeing the Red Army at the end of World War 2 – claim to have found a tunnel with railway tracks and evidence of the stash.

A rival research team from a Polish university said it had found no evidence of a train – but admitted uncovering “something strange”.
Ground penetrating radar has revealed a long tunnel containing a large amount of metal deep underground.
According to legend, an armoured train laden with Nazi gold, jewels and weapons disappeared into the hills around the Polish town Walbrzych in 1945.
The Nazis are said to have stashed it in a secret tunnel in a massive complex of hidden underground chambers they built – known as “Project Riese”.
The valuables were thought to have been lost forever – under a deathbed confession revealed their location.
Treasure hunters Piotr Koper and Andreas Richter claims one of the Germans who hid the train told them where it was shortly before he died.
At a press conference on Tuesday, they claimed to have found clear evidence of a tunnel up to 19ft wide and 29ft high – and of the possible existence of a train.
Radar images appear to show a tunnel, tracks and even sleepers.
Mr Koper said: “There is a tunnel and there is a train.”
But an expert from Krakow’s University of Science and Technology was more cautious.
He admitted the radar results did suggest a tunnel – and metal – but no train.
He said: “I will not tell you I see a train – but there is something strange.”
