PPS. In the scheme there is no depot and lines Metro-2 (D6).
True, but still no loops within the yards. No way to turn trains around if you want.

Yard 9 has a non-standard schema. The train stops at the third track for arrival at the yard, this is not a ring around the yard too.

Yes, in Moscow subway yards are terminal. Usually, the tram depot have rings.

Like in every other metro system. It's not a little tram. Trains have leading cars on both ends.

Now it's on hold for the next 10 years (guarantee period for unfinished underground construction).

Yes, one of the stations on line 6 was skipped during construction. It can be built in the future but the constructing a station on working line is always very long and expensive.

New York, LA, Paris, Washington, Chicago, Boston, London, and San Francisco might like to have a few words with you about that.

The active construction at the central part of the Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya Line is expected to begin after 2017 because "Mosmetrostroy" (the most oldest, experienced and skilled Russian construction company who wins tenders for construction of the most difficult segments) is currently busy on the northern extension of the Line 10. So, when northern segment from "Maryina Roshcha" to "Seligerskaya" will be finally completed, they will have possibilities to use own resources for Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya Line.

The Moscow metro trains new livery is absolutely gorgeous! I hope that will be adopted on the surface transport (trams, buses and trolley-buses) as well!

That is...

atypically bland.

I don't even feel like I'm really looking at Moscow.

To be honest, the original design with ceramic tile on the walls was not much better (if not worser) - the typical utilitarian "centipede" design which was common in 1960s as a result of sadly-famous Nikita Khrushchev's "'the campaign of struggle against architectural excesses". Also, during 52 years of exploitation, some pieces of tile fell off due to vibration from coming trains and were replaced with tile of different colors and shades.

Some better now!

At least the different tiles gave it some color.

At some parts this "toilet-styled" tile wasn't even replaced. Of course, it's possible to replace ceramic tile at such stations with marble or something like this. But I think, such expenses would be too unjustified. The main problem of "centipede" stations is not in facing, but minimal ceiling height (4 meters) what psychologically adds some discomfort for passengers.

It was much better.

Speaking of high ceiling. Urban people prefer more closed space, rather than open.

No, psychological studies have proven that people prefer open spaces in railroad and subway stations.

Those who come into big cities from little towns.

No, this was done with people in New York City, and Washington DC. Both times they had people who were a majority native to the area.

It is a natural human aversion to claustrophobia, and a desire for better sight lines to enhance security.

Well, of course, it's a matter of taste. That's why we can discuss it very long. But, obviously that new material is more reliable and don't cause so much problems due to vibration from trains. That's why tiles are gradually replacing at station of 1960s (which don't represent big value in architectural terms).

But I personally would like if they will use some other material in Moscow for this purpose (like ceramogranite at some St. Petersburg stations).
