5 inch track and combined 5 + 7¼ inch track

At the 10th Cologne Live Steam Meeting 2018 over 3,500 metres of track will be laid in gauges 5 inch and combined track 5 / 7¼ inch. Marshalling yards, three traversers, numerous points and a loading terminus guarantee realistic and smooth rail traffic. The track layout offers spectators plenty of variety. Lorries are loaded up, containers unloaded, silos emptied and above all - steam engines driving around the tracks for miles on end. But it's not only the engine drivers who get to enjoy the ride and the whiff of steam around their nostrils. Spectators too can take a ride on the 7¼ inch gauge steam railway (for a small fee), puffing around the tracks among the participants' light railway and narrow gauge locomotives.
