I cannot tell you the exact operational speeds in Cologne, however the v/max of modern Stadtbahnvehicles such as K4000/K5000 in Cologne is 80km/h.

If they operate at grade the speed is usually lower than that, depending on the situation.

Just few regional buses in the agglomeration have trailers. In the city of Cologne itself they can't be seen. There articulated buses are in use.

Vmax of Stadtbahn is 80 km/h or 100 km/h, depending on the type of train.

Vmax of S-Bahn is 120 km/h or 140 km/h, depending on the type of train.

The airport train station is cool! I love the fact that there appears to be a trend in Germany to put long-distance trains though the airport stations to provide immediate access to long distance locations from the airport. It is something that other countries should definitely consider doing (if they don't already).

Hey JOKO, you made a mistake:
the tracks in the middle are for the long distance trains, and the left and right tracks for S-Bahn and Regiobahnen .

Sorry, but that's not true. The tracks in the centre are the S-Bahn tracks because of the height of the platform:

Um bei unterschiedlichem Wagenmaterial einen niveaugleichen Einstieg zu gewährleisten, beträgt der Höhenunterschied zwischen Schiene und Bahnsteigkante an den äußeren Gleisen 76 cm und an den inneren, etwas tiefer verlegten, 96 cm.

76 cm = normal trains (regional and ICE)

96 cm = S-Bahn.

Source: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bahnhof...Bonn_Flughafen

You can see it on the last photo you quoted, the S-Bahn uses the regio and ICE-track, but the platform is not high enough, so the usage of this platform for the S-Bahn is not optimal.

@ AAPMBerlin: There's no need to quote ten pics (from only two posts above!) for such a simple question! :wall: It makes things just umcomfortable here!

Anyway, Cologne and Frankfurt are the only two airports with an appropriate link to far-distance trains, and they'll remain for the near future. BBI will get one, too. For Munich, maybe in the far far future as things are complicated and the first thing they have to do is create a faster connection to the city.
