A “finders claim” has been filed in a district council in Poland for an “armoured train” carrying precious metals onboard. Many have speculated this is a so-called Nazi “ghost train” which was carrying the spoils of the Second World War. In the final days of that War, the train reportedly went missing.
Filed in the south-west Polish town of Walbrzych, local media reports write the claimants, who are Polish and German, have claimed to find a 500-foot long “armoured train” with artillery platforms and is carrying “precious metals.”
Under Polish law people who find treasure can keep 10 percent of the value of their find. The historical account of the train states that Nazis loaded the train with gold and other treasure as the Red Army advanced on the city of Wroclaw. The train went south west.
“Lawyers, the army, the police and the fire brigade are dealing with this,” an official at the Walbrzych district council, Marika Tokarska, told Reuters. “The area has never been excavated before and we don’t know what we might find.”
“In the region we actually two gold train stories,” Joanna Lamparska, local historian, told Radio Wroclaw. “One is supposed to be under a mountain and the other somewhere around Walbrzych.
“But no one has ever seen documentary evidence confirming the existence of such trains.”
