    ‘Unfortunately, subway cars produced by Metrowagonmash can’t boast having a lot of Russian-made electronics because it can’t compete with European one in quality and reliability.’

    That must be the first caption in ER history, where they admit it.

    I wonder why the completely paint before assembly. Wouldn’t it be better to only do the final decorative coat at the end?

      Cuts down on labour costs. Painting AFTER final assembly means masking. Masking is labour intensive & subject to mistakes. It can also mean dealing with different materials that may require special masking. Painting BEFORE final assembly means almost no masking. Different sub-assemblies can be painted different colours. Painting can be done before other materials, such as rubber & stainless steel, are installed. Parts coming from other factories can be pre-painted.
