Well-done work. Was there the same-color granite on the floor before the reconstruction? IMO, it looks a little bit alien.

Rather different. Too much red. Or maybe it's because of newness...

No, it's a surface station located inside of parking building before the bridge. It's being built on private investor money

As far as I remember, Pyatnitskaya will become the second unique station with a curve axis in Russia.

A new type of cars will be ready by may 2010. This most probably going to be 81-760/81-761 series - classic ~20m long 4-doors (8 on both sides) cars.

Yellow bars behind seats can only be designed litke that because there are seats of course. If not, I would design them no that wide. Designer who designed this metro is experienced in public transportation. I believe choices have been weighted. But it is not his best work, definitely!

And big cat, before criticizing with hot blood, calm down, and read my previous comments! My only intention is to push russian design to the level where it should be. Russians can do much better and already proved it previously.

So don't misunderstand me, we need great examples of design in Russia to stimulate other good designs and Metro is an icon, sorry those new Metro cars are just "normal".

See this example, reflecting I believe more the aspirations of Russians, even if it is a luxurious car. If Lada were made with such inspiration and quality, believe me, world would attitude change towards Russia. Recognizing attitude and quality of work. We need a "Wow!" effect, I hope you understand this.
I will not quote pictures...

I think you are seriously misguided, Micrav.

The supercar in the picture screams that the owner has more money than the rest of people. This can not be not philosophy of a public transit system.

Tranis must be

energy efficient
spacious
comfortable - (noise level, ventilation, air conditionning when needed, seat position, area of floor realtive to seating area, number and area of the doors relative to car size, etc.)

Design should be practial, durable and should follow function.

I do not argue that trains should be poor aesthetically. I would only add that I see nothing wrong with traditional design of Moscow trains. Considering that their lifetime is about 40 years, I actually like the continuity of design. I would advocate freezing the design of late 70s as vintage style and make a trademark. Why is that San Francisco can use vintage trams that are clearly 50-60s in design, and nobody seem to mind (or London used vintage busses for years), but Moscow should be changing design of its trains like a petty girl who wants to get a new pair of slippers every week?

I have to agree the design is crappy and boxy. At least they could have added some LED info panels. I also hate the boring grey/blue colour scheme.
The interior is ok given the number of bums and vandals.
Still, this is a big step forward compared to the older trains.

I like the front (head) very much. The windows could have been more modern-looking. They look like the old stock from the 70s or 80s still running in most Paris Metro lines.
