Soon, a sign was visible on the road: Ft. Knox: Home of the 194th Armored Brigade. Traveling along Brandenburg Road turnoff, which leads into the military reservation, there are some railroad spur lines, rusted and weed infested, indicating lack of use. I remember thinking, the gold didn’t get out that way.
As we moved still closer to the fort, however, the spur lines criss-cross the entire area and these aren’t rusted, or weeded, and seem to be well used. I started to wonder.
Helicopters and small aircraft seemed to be in the air all the time.
The bus turned on to Bullion Blvd. The bus continues until it runs into the perpendicular “Gold Vault Road.” One hundred yards, or so, up is Ft. Knox Bullion Depository.
At the entrance to Gold Vault Road was a sign and a large speaker. The sign states in bold, large capital letters: HALT STATE YOUR BUSINESS IN LOUD SPEAKER. DO NOT ENTER WITHOUT PERMISSION
