TREASURE hunters have begun to dig at the site they believe a Nazi train full of gold and precious objects was buried in the desperate final weeks of World War II.
Polish media reports Piotr Koper and Andreas Richter have obtained permission from Polish State Railways to excavate a mound over what may have been a railway siding near the town of Walbrzych during the war years.
The treasure hunters insist this site adds substance to local legends involving one or more heavily armored Nazi trains fleeing the fall of Warsaw, laden with loot and valuable minerals.
The pair sparked a frenzy of international interest last year when they issued a formal claim to the district council for a share of any treasure they may uncover.

Of course if it does end up containing Nazi gold im sure the Jewish community will be demanding that they get all the gold.
Yes, they will make it all about themselves, like usual.

they should look for hills with half a side blown up. Easiest way to bury something during those years for the Axis. Put the equipment, bodies, or in this case train loot next to a hill, put explosives on hill = dirt avalanche.
My friends family buried one of Mussolinis weapons caches like this after Italy lost. Who ever owns that land now has no idea whats buried under their nose.
I suspect something similar went on with this gold.
you dont even need to dig it all up at once. one hole for each stack. Its easy if you marked it all with a simple mental grid.....The hill tells you where your stuff is so you dont go farther and you never need go too deep. A one man dig effort over time can hide and move tons of stuff like this.
