The pair said they had “irrefutable” proof of the train’s existence, based on knowledge from witnesses and on their own research. They said it was an armoured train from World War II.

TVP.INFO said it is not in a tunnel, as previously believed, but buried in the ground.

Local lore says the Nazis hid a train from the Red Army.
