Some photos of K4500, the newest low floor trains.
They call them "low floor" in Cologne, but to be exact, it is not low floor but middle floor. The trains need platforms of 35 cm height, they are similar to the trains of Vienna's U6.

These S-Bahn push/pull trains consist of a loco class 143 and x-waggons. They are in service in the network of S-Bahn Nürnberg and S-Bahn Rhein-Ruhr. The class 143 has been built in the former GDR as class 243 as freight loco. Today some of the machines are used for S-Bahn traffic.
In the near future these trains will be substituted by emus ET422 in the Rhein-Ruhr network and by Talent 2 S-Bahn edtition emus in Nuremberg's network.

So in the future ET423 of S-Bahn Köln and ET422 of S-Bahn Rhein-Ruhr will be seen on Cologne's "Stammstrecke".

P. S.: The "Stammstrecke" is the main stretch in the Centre of Cologne which is used by all lines of the S-Bahn network.

B100C of Stadtbahn Bonn in Cologne at station Herler Straße. It operates on line 18, a line which connects Cologne and Bonn. In the background a B80D train of Cologne's Stadtbahn operator KVB (Kölner Verkehrsbetriebe) can be seen.
The "F" on the box on the right means Fernsprecher – telephone, it's the so called Streckentelefon – stretch telephone:

Regional trains of Transregio (TR).

Transregio is a competitor of Deutsche Bahn (DB). In and around Cologne they use Desiro ML trains, manufactured by Siemens.

I saw Transregio trains in Cologne and Bonn. I considered catching one from Bonn to Cologne, however I didnt because it was so crowded.
Can you travel on the one KVB ticket on Transregio trains, or do you have to buy a different ticket?

The Rhein-Sieg area (Cologne/Bonn agglomeration) is covered by VRS (Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Sieg). All regional and local tickets of the VRS members are equal, as long as you do not leave the VRS it makes no difference if you buy a ticket of KVB, RVK, DB, Transregio etc.
