The letter A can also indicate Feldartillerie whilst the letter E can mean Ersatz for bataillon, kompagnie or batterie, etc.

If it was beginning with the E.A.5.122 then I would recognise it as meaning Eisenbahn-Arbeiterkompagnie.

These small differences can sometimes mean a great deal. Also these regulations did change over time.

Cheers, S>S
