Thanks for the information. As they take much less space than the ticket offices, they would however really help in easening congestion (when I see the rows of people trying to buy a ticket during rush hours or evening, I am always happy about my 3-monthly metro card), plus saving some money by closing down all but one or two ticket offices during low usage hours.

Oh, so this will be kind of an equivalent to the railway station planned at Dolovoy Centre/Mezhdunarodnaya? I've only heared so far that aeroexpress will serve all 3 airports from there, but of course it makes sense to have another terminus for them in the eastern city centre.

Of course, thinking about the situation a second time, I guess the huge new residential areas in the periphery are of more concern right now. However, the extension of the yellow line would really help relieving a few transfer stations in the center, plus it's definitely needed when the rail station is build at Moskwa City.

At least the new second ring line will be started soon: according to this article in the moscow news (last part), the first two stations Petrovsky Park and Khodinskoye Pole (project ordered in the above map) will be opened in 2015.

It's not really belonging into the Metro topic, but nevertheless: does anybode know of a usable map of elektrichkas in and around the russian capital? Mosgortrans has added all their tram , bus- and trolleybuslines into google maps, but I haven't found anything resembling this or the Moscow metro map for the elektrichkas.

It is sad but elektrichkas is the most uncomfortable transport in Moscow without any touch of the last 20 years. There are still USSR and even worse - frequency is down, delays and cancels are usual. Just add destroyed very dirty trains. And they are totally separate from all other transport of the city. The problem is elektrichkas belongs to federal JSC 'RZD' company and they aren't subordinated to Moscow city government. Oh, yes there is a JSC 'Central suburban passenger company' with RZD, Moscow city and Moscow region governments shares but all infrastructure belongs to RZD and Mr. Louzhkov was not able do deal with them. So, they live in their own separate world and doesn't care about people and their demands. No one think about elektrichkas as city transport like RER in Paris or S-Bahn in German cities. I think that's why you will hardly find it's map...

Well, maybe it's just a special case, but the stations I've seen so far looked pretty okay to me. On the weekend I was taking the Elektrichka to Sergiev Posad and the train as well as the stations on the way (especially the bigger ones like Moskwa-3 or Pushkin) as well as the train made quite an okay impression. The service interval (every 30 minutes all stops plus once an hour only a few stops) was okay, but not overwhelming. I mean, it's certainly not comparable to German S-Bahn (especially considering you need all those special tickets in Moscow) in the Center of the big cities, but if you go outside of them, you'd see that German S-Bahn doesn't have much higher standards there. On the contrary, especially at smaller stations, the station houses are usually closed and platform roofs are missing, being replaced by small huts similar to tram or bus stations.

Anyway, the elektrichka lines connected to a certain train stations have these maps, unfortunately nobody ever made the effort to show all the lines on one map, possibly cutting out the outer ends:

One question:
Does the Spartak station have an entrance? Can someone enter?

It was built in the middle of nowhere. Under old Tushino airfield. It was planned in 1960's to redevelop it with a large housing district. But essentially the project was cancelled when station was already built.

Amazing station. Thank you very much AlekseyVT & coth. Is it safe to reach the station via tunnels? I wanna do it when I'll visit Moscow. I'm pretty sure it's illegal though. Btw, these tunnels look like cut and cover ones. Did they build them this way?

it's possible with an official permission only. you won't able to enter the tunnel on the daylight because of alarm movement detectors. hardly anyone let you in on the night

Alarm movement detectors! Something new...
What about the Diggers? At least, 5 years ago they could go anywhere. I mean for the option to go there during the night.

Everything has become much stricter. Especially with the lines that "do not exist".

There are ones on every entrance to the tunnel on every station. And not only there. It's not like in Paris where everyone can walk in the tunnels.
