Michał Owczarek finds out how the search for a supposedly treasure-laden train is progressing
The search for a long-lost Nazi train carrying what is believed to be billions of dollars in gold and other valuables is underway with the local authorities of Wałbrzych, south-western Poland, trying to find irrefutable evidence of its existence.

After the Polish army confirmed earlier this month that no hazardous materials to a depth of one metre existed at the site in question, the next stage in the search for the train is in the hands of the local authorities.
Wałbrzych City Hall has recently been receiving offers to conduct complimentary surveys at the site.
Meanwhile, as Michał Owczarek reports, tourism industry seems to be booming in the area thanks to the media storm.
"We have been contacted by various scientific agencies,” said Arkadiusz Grudzień, spokesman for the Wałbrzych City Hall.
"The Lower Silesian Historical Society has offered to conduct a non-invasive survey and a military engineering company has declared exploratory and archaeological assistance at the site."
