The star with Bundesadler was introduced 1984 for Bahnpolizei, with new blue uniform in same cut as Landespolizei. So they predate reorganisation as part of BGS. This style were worn until 1992. Kees' cap look like rebadged older one based on the wool material.

Gordon and Klaus thank you for your information.
The visor is definitely rebadged cause the prong holes,although very small ,are just visible on the capband from a previous badge.
I have no provenance for it.
I wish I could tell you I plucked it of a Railway Police officers head and ran with it back in the eighties,but in fact I only found it in the trash at the ragmill.
Saved it from the incinirator by doing so however,so a small good deed.
All the best,
