It using as signal plates for train driver. Black circle means he can ride away from station (there are red circles at the other sides of these plates - it's mean that train must stay at the station some more time).

At the terminus stations, trains are either going in dead ends for switching of own direction or they are going in Metro depot. Sometimes trains are going to Metro depot not from terminus stations. In all these situations, all passengers must leave the carriages. Of course, there is audio information about it in the trains. However, some passengers can don't hear it because they are listening music in earphones / they are sleeping / they are drunk... or for other reasons. So, station attendant must check all carriages before leaving of trains - from head carriage to the end of train. If there remains some passengers, she must ask them to leave the train. When all carriages are empty, she must give signal for train driver with using this plate while staying near end of train.

Yes, one attendant per station (of course, attendants are changing each other according to established schedule). They are also responsible for control of schedule of train operation, video registration of passenger traffic at the station and for control of works of cleaners.

I think it is cozy, because some other subways in the world don't have these attendants on the platform

I don't know what situation at other world Metro systems (especially where passenger traffic is much lower and time intervals between trains are much longer comparing with Moscow Metro). However, at railway transport similar profession exists for more than 100 years.

The salary of station' attendants is not so high. So, I guess their total salaries is just little part of overall Metro expenses.

On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe!!!

(the railroad's logo is visible in the background)

That's pretty much the stereotypical American railroad worker of the early 20th Century.

Please two questions:

Do you use wet water-mains as hydrants in stations or is it a dry system? The Lady on the last Picture, does she use a short-circuit-closer or is it just for control if there is any current in third rail? Thanks.

BTW, Berlin U-Bahn did have Station-attendants in the past, too. London Underground still has too, if I recall correctly

She is checking that there is lack of voltage in the third (contact) rail for the further installation of short-circuit-closer on it (in order to remain safe in the case of unexpected supplying of voltage on the third rail).

Thanks Gulliver to your quick answer. We do the same in Berlin, checking Voltage with a lamp-board. Of cause in earlier time we had a short-circuit-closer looking similar to that Thing, the lady used.

They also get small things like wallets or phones occasionally dropped on the way using special tool.
