The black Dutch uniform in one of the photos, is that Rijkswacht or Marechausee border service ?

Yes, the Rijkswacht.

The Reichsbahn uniform has original insignia.

The Bahnschutzpolizei uniform was more difficult, for example the arm eagle was hand made in Greece recently.

In the last 12 months a lot of Colditz railway paperwork has come to light, mostly on ebay UK.
By brother sent some over on my birthday last year (or the year before that?)

we visited there earlier this year & it was strewn all around the grounds,including the metal cargo tags with "COLDITZ" stamped on them.
