Visor hat of Railroad Vocational School student, 1988.

Size 57 (US 7 1/8). Navy blue gabardine, with black velvet band and royal blue piping. Hat badge with sky blue center showing Cyrillic letters "PTO" (Professional Technical Education) and crossed hammer and wrench emblem of Soviet railroads. Wings with the same emblem are attached on top. Sweat diamond is of the Mayak Factory in the City of Gor'kiy.

The wings on many of the world's railway uniforms have always symbolized speed not flight!
