Golden Rush in Wałbrzych - Poland

31 st August 2015

The president of Walbrzych has confirmed that gold train exists and is located in his city. Wow, the fantastic news.. . The train is probably 150 metres long and probably was hidden in the adit.

Maybe the train is here.... who knows...

POLAND’S DEPUTY CULTURE minister today added to the excitement over the possibility of a huge “Nazi gold train” hidden under ground for the last 70 years.
Piotr Zuchowski said he had seen a radar image of the alleged Nazi train that has set off a gold rush, adding that he is almost certain it exists.
I’m more than 99 percent sure such a train exists, but the nature of its contents is unverifiable at the moment.
Local media have for days been abuzz with old lore of trains full of gold and jewels stolen by the Nazis after two men – a German and a Pole – claimed to have found an armoured train car in the southwestern city of Walbrzych.
“I saw a good quality ground-penetrating radar image showing what the train looks like,” he said, adding that he could make out platforms and cannons on the photo.
Zuchowski, who is also the national heritage conservation officer, refused to reveal the train’s exact location, adding:
My understanding is that no one has accessed it since the (Second World) War.
Someone, who decades ago took part in hiding the 100-metre long (330 feet) train, passed along the information by word of mouth, Zuchowski said, but did not specify to whom.
And this person shared the information on their deathbed along with a sketch of where it could be found.

Zuchowski confirmed that the German and Pole, who wish to remain anonymous, have the right to claim a finder’s fee of 10 percent of the value of the train’s contents.
“The fact that this train is armoured suggests there could be valuable objects inside” including artwork, archival documents or treasures, he said.
But he warned that the train could also be booby-trapped.
Rumours of two special Nazi trains that disappeared in the spring of 1945 have been circulating for years, capturing the imagination of countless treasure hunters.
The lore has its basis in the existence of secret underground passages near Walbrzych that Nazi Germany ordered built and where legend has it the Third Reich stashed valuables.
On Friday, dozens of curious onlookers could be seen loitering around a train track slope in Walbrzych where the train may be hidden.

  1. Hi, Gosia!
    I hope the train is found and Poland is safe and prospers!
    I don't know where my ancestors lived. I'm asking the siblings so I can answer your questions! My mom passed away 3 years ago at 96 so she's not here to ask.
    Have a great day.

    Hugs,
    Mary

  3. I read that it was "probably" protected with explosives set to go off it it was tampered with. So it will be tricky to get inside it, once they find it that is.

  4. The train news has been reported here. Hard to believe a whole train could disappear.

  5. The more I read the "Dribs and Drabs" of this story, the more sceptical I become.
    The Amber room treasures also haven't all been found by a long shot and they
    were "reputedly" hidden in Poland also.
    Now the Polish government has the problem of the "immigrant treasure" hunters
    who are NOT wanted and I fully understand and appreciate that problem.

    This "missing train of gold" may prove more of a thorn in the side of authorities
    than the "so-called prospective loot" is worth - IF FOUND?????
    Well time will tell. Anyhow better than reading of random shooting in some countries.
    Cheers
