Train Composition Maps for Cologne Hbf
On my upcoming trip to Germany I'm travelling from Frankfurt to Essen with a connection at Cologne, this was booked deliberately so I can travel via the scenic Rhine railway (experienced it once before and want to do it again).
Is it possible to view the train composition maps that are displayed on the platforms so I can try and get my allocated seats on both trains as close as possible (it's a cross platform change with about 5 mins between trains).
Arrive Cologne IC 2026 Plat 4 Change to ICE 518 Plat 5 on a Saturday.
Just trying to simplify the connection as much as possible if I can
