Men walk in underground galleries, part of Nazi Germany 'Riese' construction project under the Ksiaz castle in the area where the 'Nazi gold train' is supposedly hidden underground, on August 28, 2015 in Walbrzych, Poland.

Polish geology experts say they have found no traces of a train at a site allegedly hiding a World War II Nazi train.

Experts from a mining academy in Krakow examined the site in southwestern Poland last month using magnetic and gravitation methods. The head of the team, Janusz Madej, said Tuesday that "according to our examination, there might be a tunnel there but there is no train there."

Earlier this year two explorers told authorities in the city of Walbrzych that they have located an armored Nazi train hidden in a secret tunnel in the city.

According to local lore, the Nazis hid a train with gold in a secret tunnel during the war.
