Default The Lagering Step

In the middle of my first lager (after countless ales). Fermentation was at 54, and I'm at the DA rest now. Can I lager in a corney keg or will I still require some sort of airlock?
Also, upon completion, should I then rack the beer into a new keg, or will it be fine to carb and serve in the same vessel I lager in?

Yes you can lager in a keg. No need for an airlock. I do rack my lagers to another keg after the lagering period, but many don't, personal choice there....

Yup not a problem. Rack to a keg, purge the head space with gas and your good to go.
