On Thursday, Polish culture ministry official Piotr Zuchowski issued a statement urging treasure enthusiasts not to go hunting for the train which he said he is certain is real on their own.

..

Theres a huge probability that the train is booby-trapped, he said, according to the BBC.

..

This is not the first time Polish authorities have lent credence to rumors of hidden treasure in the area. Officials quietly excavated parts of the tunnel system in the 1960s, but turned up nothing more than a few old coins. According to the BBC, they looked again in the 1990, without any luck.

..

We have had a lot of stories like that in the last few years with people claiming they know where the train is, Joanna Lamparska, a Polish author who has written about the train, told the AP. But nothing was ever found.

..

But that is unlikely to dampen the excitement in Walbrzych, where rumors about the supposed gold train have long been endemic and traces of the Nazi presence still linger.

..

The Germans arrived in 1939, during the swift invasion of Poland that touched off the start of World War II. The noble family that lived in the local castle, Ksiaz, fled the country one of the sons changed his name and joined the British air force, another fought in the Polish army. Two years later, the Nazis seized the castle, according to the Ksiaz Web site.

..

Eduard Wawrzyczko, who had worked as caretaker at Ksiaz for 49 years by the time the Germans arrived, watched in mute horror as the sumptuous 200-room residence was turned into military barracks.

..

In 1943, Hitler came here with [Nazi official Hermann] Goering and they went through the castle, he told the New York Times in 1961. A Times reporter had been sent to the rural corner of Poland after a hullaballo arose about secret Polish military excavations of the tunnels.

This was a bare, crumbling ruin, gutted of its Baroque finery. Goering was one of the chief orchestrators of the Nazis art confiscation program, and he quickly stripped Ksiaz of its valuable art and furniture. After everything of value was carted away, the castle was turned into housing for soldiers. The 300-year-old ceiling frescoes were obscured with a thick layer of whitewash and the elaborate mosaics ripped from the tile floors.

..

Not long after that, the Germans started work on their mysterious tunnels, Wawrzyczko told the Times.

..

They brought in the Todt organization for that, with slave labor, he said, referring to the Nazi engineering arm notorious for its use of forced labor.

..

The tunnel project was dubbed Riese, meaning giant, according to the AP, and its still not clear what it was for. Many believed that Hitler intended to make the Riese complex into his new headquarters. Others speculated that weapons would be stored in the subterranean caverns, or that a secret rail system was being built underground.
