I posted this to the list some time ago, and was laughed down - maybe it's
not so far-fetched after all.

On Monday 26 March, 1996 private investigator Nikolos Soren of Los Angeles
called a news conference at the Convention Center in San Diego.

He told reporters that while on a stakeout just west of the Montgomery
Freeway, he aimed his 'bionic ear' shotgun microphone across the bay at the
Coronado Naval Amphibious Base one Silver Strand Blvd.  He then accidently
listened in on a conversation at the base.

According to Soren, he heard one officer say:

"Oh, shit!  Look at the time.  We'd better get back in.  The tube train
leaves in fifteen minutes for Groom Lake!"

The alleged tube train is said to connect Coronado with Area 51/Groom Lake
at the Nellis Air Force Range in Nevada, 255 miles to the east.  The Navy
has of course denied the existence of the tube train, or any other
"underground bullet train".  However, at a further news conference on
Friday March 29, Soren claimed to have received phone calls telling him to
"shut up about the train".
