The Newly Delivered Reichsbahn Train

The newly delivered Reichsbahn train with factory number "50 467" in Thorn (East Prussia.) The Reichsbahner (railway worker) at the front of the camera wearing a special uniform for the occupied territories with 8 buttons (usually 6), and the rare and only briefly used Litzenkragenspiegel of Generalgouvernement Polen. Unfortunately, the photographer had no steady hand and it has bit blurred when shooting. Also noteworthy is the Reichsbahn Adler, in which here the two letters "D" and "R" are attached on both sides of the emblem, which was more typically used in cars. The picture was taken by Walter Hollnagel in June 1940
