BACKGROUND: When the Nazi Party gained power in January of 1933, the German railway system was maintained and administered by two civilian organizations, the DR, "Deutsches Reichsbahn" (German National-railway), and the DR-G, "Deutsches Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft" (German National-railway - Corporation), which were each overseen by the national government. Both the DR and the DR-G were uniformed organizations responsible for all the railways within Greater Germany, and eventually in the occupied areas. In February of 1937, in a restructuring of the national railways, the DR-G was absorbed into the DR. The uniforms and insignia of DR personnel were modified numerous times during the Third Reich, although, as a civilian organization, they were not graded with ranks but were assigned positions as officials. Shoulder boards were first introduced for their uniforms in June of 1936.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Dark blue fabric construction, double breasted style, full length, raincoat with fold back lapels and a large, lay down collar. The raincoat features dual, vertical, parallel, rows of six, front closure buttons with corresponding button eyelets on the left front panel.
