    Hello Rohleder und Gefreiter, DDR Deutsche Reichsbahn , i think. During 1990 travelling from Koln to Berlin i had the ocasion of take a look to ex Deutsche Reichsbahn workers and officials and they weared the old shoulderstraps , but with the Soviet russian system . that is from one to four stars (pips) to denote specific rank. and the aluminium stars for lower ranks made in the DDR, are quite distinctive.

    Saw them usually with not more than two stars. 


    I know that the reichsbahn of the gdr had shoulder boards like this with 3 stars - rank was Reichsbahn Oberassistent if I remember correctly. 

    You remembered correctly Rohleder. I found them illustrated on the net and as you said rank was Reichsbahn Oberassistent.

    Great stuff. Thanks
