Description
Reichsverkehrsdirektion Kiew patch for the Ostbahn Eastern Railways of the Deutsche Reichsbahn DRB. The Reichs Transportation Ministry RVM was given broad powers of control over rail and waterway transportation in the occupied Soviet Union. Soviet railways became the special property of the Reichsbahn under the RVM with headquarters in Warsaw. Under this RVM, divisions were formed as Reichsverkehrsdirektions with this one being the Ostbahn division for Kiev in occupied Ukrainia. The Reichsbahn considerably improved the railways in the eastern provinces converting eastern broad guages to standard guage rail.
