Armoured train located in Poland

Hello, all.

According to various newspapers, an armoured train which has been rumoured to have escaped Breslau (Wroclaw) in April 1945 carrying valuables and documents, has been located in an underground tunnel (or buried as some report states).

http://www.theguardian.com/world/201...ealed-location

My hope is that the train was carrying not only weapons and valuables in the monetary sense, but also that it might contain document archives and the like from the fleeing units.

It will be very interesting to follow this story!

Regards,
Anbreas B

Hey, it might include the missing 1944 files!

Imagine what that would bring on Ebay!

Re: Armoured train located in Poland

Don't forget the other half of the wartime negs..., the box of SS honour rings. Oooh, the possibilities of this.

What happened to this train... Did it surface or was it like the Spits in the hole in Burma or wherever...

Re: Armoured train located in Poland

As I said from the get-go, the whole story is BS; no train, no loot, nada.
