A train passes by the site where local explorer Tadeusz Slowikowski says the Nazis hid a train from the Red Army in early 1945, in Walbrzych, Poland. Two men appeared Friday, Sept. 4, 2015 on Polish TV saying they are the finders of a Nazi train said to be laden with gold — a claim that came as the Polish military inspected the alleged site in southwest Poland. Authorities in the southwest city of Walbrzych said last month that two men had contacted them through lawyers claiming they had found an armored train that possibly contains valuables and weapons. The report sparked a gold rush around Walbrzych, where tales have circulated since World War II that the Nazis hid a train full of gold from the Soviet Army in early 1945.
