    I don't believe this for a nano-second. It's a train, on rails. You can't just hide these things, especially when you've been defeated.

    I know exactly what you mean. I have mixed feelings on this one. If it had just been the Daily Mail I would be very sceptical. However it was released by Reuters. If there was a train alleged to have gone missing in a known area, then it can't be too hard to figure out where it went! Follow the tracks on the ground or on a map and you'll eventually find the tunnel. However I don't know how things are in Poland, maybe if the tunnel has been blasted part way in at both ends no one has tried hard enough to get in until now. Who knows. I'll watch with interest, is it a hoax or an incredible find? Who knows what lays hidden in mines and tunnels in some of these Eastern European countries that were occupied by the nazis during WW2.

    He never told much where he had been, but he was a well educated fine mechanican,
    must have been Paris and somewhere Czech country or so.
    Something with photography maybe or even in some secret fabrication, I really don't know, my mother either.

    Easy answer: death on a stick.

    Say you are a nation that up to a year or two back thought they were going to rule the world, but now realise that you're looking defeat in the face AND, due to your fellow countrymen's racist habits are looking at pretty much everyone else in the world hating you for decades. You have a load of valuables on a train, which you want to hide.

    First thing you do: make sure some of the locals know that there's a train-load of something very important hidden in that tunnel over there, which you helpfully signpost by blasting the tunnel entrances, having first booby-trapped the rest of the tunnel and the train very thoroughly indeed.

    Second thing you do: hide the valuables somewhere other than in the train, which remains as an object lesson in why digging out old Nazi tunnels is a bad idea.

    Third thing: scarper somewhere safe and come back when the coast is clear to dig out your ill-gotten gains.

    Which most of the escaped Nazis never did, and instead died in Argentina, if they didn't escape the Neuremburg trials.

    This is likely why the discoverers have made such a song and dance about the discovery. They know full well that the tunnels will be unstable to this day, and after the unstable sections are bypassed, you're still faced with live booby traps, unexploded ordnance, and goodness knows what else up to and including various military toxins including phosphorus incendiaries and smoke (deadly in a confined space), and a train that may or may not have anything worth salvaging in at all.

    In the circumstances, it is much easier to let someone else do the difficult, dangerous bit whilst you take the glory, the book rights and a small share of the gold if there is any.

    More news on the hunt for the Nazi gold train.
    It seems to be more and more possible that those two guys have actually found it! Good for them..

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/poland/11830226/Nazi-gold-train-found-live.html

    And the area is actually perfect to hide even a 100 metres long train, it's full of secret tunnels built during the WW2 like the ones under Ksiaz Castle or Project Riese - still not fully discovered.

    Well it's still not confirmed for 100% and no pictures etc..

    If it was on the daily mail it's got to be true?
