Has the legendary Nazi Gold Train been found at last?

What are the Nazi “gold trains”? The “Nazi Gold Trains”, also known as the Walbrzych gold trains, are legendary Nazi German-era trains, laden with gold and treasures, rumored to have been buried underground toward the end of World War II. At the time, Germans in Poland were in retreat from the advancing Russian army. Witnesses report seeing the trains being hastily loaded in Wroclaw (eastern Poland) and leaving in a south-western direction. According to legend, the trains left Wroclaw (named Breslau at the time) filled with gold, jewelry, and stolen artwork as well as documents and experimental military technology.

Legendary Pope Lick Monster claims yet another victim in Kentucky

The Pope Lick Monster, a part-man, part-goat, and part-sheep creature rumored to lure victims onto the Norfolk Southern Railway bridge over Floyd’s Fork Creek (aka Pope Lick Creek) in the Fisherville area of Louisville, Kentucky, has claimed yet another victim this week – 26-year-old surgical assistant Roquel Bain died on the infamous railway trestle on Saturday, April 23, 2016 after being unable to escape on oncoming train.

Vietnam crazy train passes mere inches from resident’s front doors

Located in the densely populated area of Old Quarter in capital city of Hanoi in Vietnam, this train passes down a narrow residential neighborhood street – mere inches from the front doors of residents. Residents know the train schedule, which passes by twice each day, and bring in possessions and children before the train passes. Some smaller items (e.g. motorcycles in the picture above) are left leaning tight against the homes providing mere inches of leeway between the motorcycle and passing train. One visitor who viewed the phenomena noted: “At just about 4 pm and 7 pm every day, you suddenly notice people start to file into their homes and in the front yard where kids were playing and women were cutting vegetables is suddenly replaced by rushing

British student comes forward with close-range account of troll-like creature chasing train

A 25-year-old British student has reported what he describes as “a troll looking creature” chasing after a train that was travelling through flooded fields towards London.  The lad said that at first, he thought the creature was a “fat bloke running through the soggy fields, water up to his knees”.  As the creature neared the slow-moving train, he was able to observe it at close range. “I thought it was a person… until it got closer to the train.  We were going at a very slow speed because of the surrounding water.  It wasn’t a man.  I don’t know what that was but it had hair all over the body, and a bald face and chest.  The eyes reminded me of a gorilla’s but it had

Kansas man wearing headphones hit by speeding train – gets up, makes a phone call, and walks away

Authorities say a Kansas man, 25-year-old Kristopher Wenberg, was walking along railroad tracks in Topeka, Kansas wearing headphones when he was hit by a train that he didn't hear approaching behind him. To survive being struck by a train is a stroke of luck but Wenberg stood up, made a phone call on his cellphone, and walked away – nothing short of a miracle! Shawnee County Sheriff Herman Jones says the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) conductor applied the train’s emergency brakes and blew the horn when he saw 25-year-old Kristopher Wenberg on the tracks in Topeka on Thursday. Wenberg told deputies he was wearing headphones and couldn't hear the train, which eventually hit him. Jones says Wenberg promptly got back up and called someone on
