The Moscow Underground 1

All in all the Moscow underground has 15 depots. “Izmailovo” was opened in January, 14th, 1950. Initially it was a subdivision of “Sokol” depot and later it became independent.

More than 200 carriages are being serviced in the depot. "EM", "EZH" type carriages are being substituted by new "Rusich" ones. Besides, in the depot a workshop is functioning where wheel pairs from all the underground are repaired.

    An interesting perspective on Moscow’s underground system. In the West, the Moscow underground was always known for the beauty of it’s stations-even during Communist times. It is interesting to see a view of the more functional aspects of the system.

    Say what you will about anything else in Russia, one thing they did (and do) extremely well is build ways to move people and plenty of them. The stations, especially the older ones are works of art, the system is clean (although a bit noisy) and it’s dirt cheap to use.

    If it’s not the best underground public transit system in the world, what is?

    I have only been in the Ekaterinburg subway in Russia.There are 6 stations and they all look different.They are very clean and have statues and murals on the walls and 2 of them have marble floors and walls.There is a joke that so much marble was used for 1 station the city could only afford 6 stations.
