no markings in the tunic.

armbadges like that of the bus are called spartenabzeichen I learned all recently.

great picture naxos,thanks for posting it.
this shows that these badges are worn by private transport sector as well as the bundesbahn.
maybe his collar patches represent the firms logo of that time.
all the best,
kees

here's an example for a railway workers safety cap.
most got dirty with grease and such and were replaced rather then washed.
roadworkers etc probably had these to for safety.
undated and I don't know until when these were produced.

Kees,

Interesting orange hats. I don't think that I have ever seen these before. Obviously brightly coloured to get your attention. Unfortunately, I have no idea what they were used for.

Regards,

Gordon

Gordon,the visibility is required for footworkers between the tracks and train driving personal that work for instance at the marshalling yard.
it can be a cap for a safety supervisor wich must be present with a foot workcrew.
then the crew wears yellow or no cap because there must be distinction between workers or safety man.
I've been walking between tracks myself with safety personal present doing work at marshalling yards or along miles of railroadtrack.
some trains you just don't hear coming.
hats off for the railroad workers.
picture is that of the largest yard in europe,second in the world,located at Maschen,south off hamburg .
spent one night there in a crowded army train going for manouvers,never forgot that sight.
all the best,
kees

kees,

Thanks for the explanation of who wore these caps and why. Personal experience is the best guide to how things were used.

Regards,

Gordon

Ebay visor listed as being Third Reich Mining Railway ( Bergswerksbahn). Hat is definately postwar, and the BRD cockade has been switched out. At the same time, I believe the Schwingen to be original to the hat.

stonemint,

A very interesting cap badge. Looks like a combination of railroad and miners badges. It also appears to be silver in colour which could indicate a private railroad. Possibly someone who works for a company who transports coal by rail?

Regards,

Gordon

Gordon--I would agree. Here is a close-up of the insiginia, it is one-piece.
(This style is not referenced during the TR). Also, the interior of the hat:
