  3. That is the difference between the capitalists and socialists ( who cares about the cost) it is just brilliant preserves national calture,
    Why am I stressing you would not understand as there is not any calture in your country

    • Yes, it is a wonderful and an original idea, if not a bit impractical for Moscow metro. May be they use this train off-peak hours and on certain roots (i.e. less prone to vandalism) As to the “calture”, Alex, one of the attributes of culture is being tolerant and I don’t think you are here. Often you can prove your point ( and you do have one, I agree) if you approach the discussion in a less confrontational manner

  4. This is really unusual!
    The one who came up with this idea is brilliant.
    How does it cope with the rush hour? Or is there none at all?

  5. although your name tells you might be russian,but I really doubt it!
    in russia no one would do something like vandalizm to such a beautiful public property!

  6. This train runs on my subway line, I get it every week.
    It was painted in honor of Child Protection Day last year.
