Treasure hunters excavate site of a buried Nazi "gold train"

<p>A team of treasure hunters searching for a Nazi “gold train” have started excavations on the sight where the legendary train supposedly vanished in southwest Poland near the Czech border 1945. </p> <p>Six independent companies using radar technology have detected the evidence of a tunnel on the site.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet"tw-align-center data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">From The Economist Espresso: Treasure hunt: Poland’s elusive gold train <a href="https://t.co/Zt8ypuLxE9">https://t.co/Zt8ypuLxE9</a></p>— Veeken (@loglog_vc) <a href="https://twitter.com/loglog_vc/status/765615331306004480">August 16, 2016</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <p>Andrzej Galik is a member of the search team:” I have to admit the results of the <br /> ground-penetrating radar examinations are very promising.
