What are the conductor hats made of?
All aboard! Tickets please! Race through the countryside on your very own train as the conductor! These train conductor hats are a great economical costume accessory option for children and adults who absolutely love trains. One-size fits most, unstructured cotton, sturdy and stylish. This is great on its own, but could be even better with the other pins and accessories available in our store!
The hat body and brim are made with a sturdy plastic and the hat is covered with an attractive dark navy blue fabric. The brim is covered with a shiny black vinyl. The black strap on the front of the cap is also a shiny black vinyl and is tacked on with domed metal tacks. The inside hat band is made of a comfortable black cotton. The hat fits loose but not enough that it falls off.
How do the ticket punches work?
This punch makes an “L” shaped hole in the ticket. A conductor's punch cancelled the passenger's ticket stub and also cancelled the main portion of the ticket retained by the conductor. Each conductor had his own punch, which made a specifically shaped hole. The hole shape differed from punch to punch. In this way, if a passenger presented a stub and claimed his ticket had already been taken, a conductor could verify who in fact cancelled the ticket. A railroad conductor on a passenger train was (and is today) the supervising officer of the train and supervisor of the entire train crew. In addition to this supervisory role, the passenger-train conductor serves as the pursar, in charge of seeing to it that all fares are collected.
