Because of the similarity to South Australian Volunteers (SAV) and South Australian Militia (SAM) buttons, I thought this must be a South Australian Rifles button rather than a SA Railways button. Checking in the South Australian Library collection, I found a photo of a railways porter in 1950 that is clear enough to see the buttons.
