This is not stupid question, this is actual question of last months. Unfortunately, there appeared serious problems with construction of tunnels. The area is very swampy, and construction company (who had no serious experience in Metro construction) violated the construction technology because they were in a hurry to build it in time. As a result, on July 8 future tunnels between "Vykhino" and "Lermontovsky Prospekt" were deformed due to groundwaters. It will take time to eliminate consequences of this accident. Currently there are still not installed objects of the water-pumping system. Nobody can say when all necessary works in the tunnels will be finished

Schöma tunnel locomotives in Moscow

Also the tunnel between Metro depot "Likhobory" and future Metro station "Okruzhnaya" on Lyublinskaya Line 10 (Lime) has some of these larger Schöma Model Type CFL350DCL. [Post #2307]

These locomotives have an interesting history - they are pre used locomotives, obtained second-hand after having been used building the huge Gotthard Base Tunnel in Switzerland. The tunnel boring in Switzerland has been completed and the locomotives have been returned to the factory in Germany where they were orginally built. Each locomotive has a full overhaul - stripped down to the bare underframe, diesel engine replaced, transmission overhauled and freshly repainted.

Love the brightness and design elements and I am a bit surprised how Moscow hasn't stick to same old same old but is letting the style roll. Very inspiring.

The general conditions of works for construction of the northern radius of the Line 10 are very difficult due to unstable soil with high level of groundwaters:

This TBM is almost 12-years old:

However, its age is not big problem for the hands of skilled personnel:

Pavlo Dybenko or Pavel Efimovich Dybenko (February 16, 1889 – July 29, 1938) was a Russian Revolutionary and a leading Soviet officer of enslaved Ukrainian Cossack origin. He is descendant of Ukrainian Cossack family Dyba, known from registries of Russian Empire of the 18th and 19th centuries, but his direct forefathers were made enslaved peasants as many other free, Cossack people of Ukraine of that cruel times. As many other people supported the idea of "Red democracy" so he can be classified as Red Cossack.

So, city officials decided to name Metro station in the honour of Khovrino District in which it located (not after nearest Dybenko Street) in order to avoid furious political disputes about role of his personality in the Russian history.
