Some railway guns from France ended up in the village of Sluiskil in the Netherlands in September 1944. This was the end of the line (literally) after the retreat from France since these guns could not be ferried across the Scheldt. A nice site devoted to these guns:
There is an article in I believe in one issue of ATB. I believe it says several were captured during the German retreat in the west in 1944. I think it also mentions the Russians capturing at least one. I have read that a number of German rail guns which may have included at least one K5 were used in the fighting on the Oder river in 1945. They were destroyed by Soviet air attacks or captured in the final days of the war. I am not sure of any of the above since it has been a long time that I have read anything about them. I hope this is of some help.
