Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
One note on travel speeds:

Even the Köln-Frankfurt(Airport) trip clocks in at only ~175km/h.

But then that still includes the 200 km/h max Cologne-Siegburg upgraded line. I checked the currently scheduled runs on the line, apparently the fastest travel times are those between Frankfurt(Airport) Siegburg/Bonn on Cologne bound runs (covering the entire high-speed section) that don't stop in Limburg Süd and Montabaur (38 minutes over 143.3 km = 226.3 km/h). But, the relatively short Siegburg/Bonn-Montabaur runs also clock a respectable 210.3 km/h in both directions (18 minutes over 63.1 km).
