Lawyer says alleged Nazi train has precious minerals

A gold rush has erupted in the southwestern Polish city of Walbrzych after the men told authorities they have located a war-time train there, possibly with valuables. A deputy culture minister said he is 99 percent sure the train exists, adding fuel to a local legend about a Nazi gold train hidden since 1945 in a tunnel in Walbrzych.

But lawyer Jaroslaw Chmielewski told TVN24 on Wednesday the train is buried in the ground and probably holds no valuables except some precious minerals.
