Exciting picture. Your suggestions?

1. Photoshop. Fake. No questions.
2. The service unit. So many questions.
3. D-6. Why a new type of car and the ugly disguise?

Some better now!

I completely agree. Actually the "centipede" design was very common in 1960s not only in the Soviet Union but also in many others country. I've seen this type of station, for example, in Berlin and in Stockholm.

This is a typical utilitarian design station in Berlin.


And this is Stockholm

The term "centipede" refers not to facing of track wall, but mainly to typical construction of shallow Metro stations in Moscow and in ex-Soviet Union in general. The typical shallow column station in Russia is triple-span, assembled from concrete and steel, and is from 102 to 164 metres in length with a column spacing of 4-6.5 m. The original "centipede" Moscow Metro stations of 1960s have two rows of columns by 40 columns in each (column spacing - 4 metres), hence the name. Some later, in 1970s the typical construction was some modified - two rows of columns by 26 columns in each (column spacing - 6 metres). Due to larger column spacing, such modification was more comfortable for passengers.

"Pervomayskaya" station opened in 1961 is the first "centipede" station in Moscow. This consruction was common for shallow Metro stations in 1960s.



In 1972 in Moscow were opened first "centipede" stations built by new modification like "Ulitsa 1905 Goda". This modification become common for shallow Metro stations in 1970s and partly - in 1980s (together with single-vaulted design).

Berlin and Stockholm aren't that bad. Neither are the two example stations at the bottom.

If bathroom tiles are so vulnerable to train vibrations, they were a poor choice for station track walls. Or maybe this was just poor masonry. In light of this, perhaps they make more sense for side-platform stations (which are relatively few in Moscow).

There will be four bronze sculptures of sportmen at future Metro station CSKA (Third Interchange Contour) - football player, ice hockey player, basketball player and cross-country skier. The model for sculpture of basketball player is Victor Khryapa, the current captain of BC CSKA, two-time Euroleague winner (2008, 2016), European Champion (2007) and bronze medalist of 2012 Summer Olympics.

October 31, 2016. The beginning of the general reconstruction of the ground-level segment of Line 4.

http://kviten.livejournal.com/72984.html



Metro station "Fili" opened on November 7, 1959 (during sadly-famous Nikita Khrushchev's "'the campaign of struggle against architectural excesses").





The one of two vestibules is closed.

There will be granite surface instead of asphalt.



Also, there will be extended canopy over side platforms. During reconstruction, one of side platforms will be closed for passengers. When reconstruction of this platform will be finished, the other side platform will be also closed for reconstruction.

Metro station "Studencheskaya" ("Students") opened on November 7, 1958. Speaking in general, the ground-level segment of the Line 4 consists of 7 Metro stations which were opened in 1958-1965 during the sadly-famous Nikita Khrushchev's "'the campaign of struggle against architectural excesses").



There is only one vestibule in the center of station.

While its not as fancy as the older stations, it still has a nice, clean, international look to it.

yes, according to numerous news articles. It will also run overnight on "City Day" (a holiday celebrated in early September) as well as during the 2018 soccer World Cup.

34 new stations have been opened this year in Moscow Metro, with 2 more to be opened by the end of the year. This is an all-time record if I recall correctly

That's an average of three stations a month! Not many places in the world that you see that happening!
