So I read that they're only running Rusich on the Ring Line. But don't all Rusich trains show the destination on their electronic signs in front? What do they display on the Ring Line, where there is no destination? Do they show "counterclockwise" or "inner loop" or something like that?

Yes, and moreover we still have two main train plants in Moscow and St. Petersburg keeping spare parts production for all their trains. The design life is long, but we have only one line where the lifetime was extended. The oldest trains runs on purple line 7. They were refurbished during last years. We have no more old trains with incandescent lamps for example.

New version of old and very popular 717/714 family. First this type train used in Moscow since 2011. A cheap substitute for the future 760 (see below).

http://wiki.nashtransport.ru/wiki/Ва...81-717.6/714.6

81-740.4/741.4 'Rusich'
Firstly developed in 2002 for Butovskaya line. Used on 4 lines in Moscow and Sofia. Currently the 4-th version in production. First with a/c in Moscow.

http://wiki.nashtransport.ru/wiki/Ва...81-740.4/741.4

81-760/761
Brand new type finishing test rides. Will work in Moscow since 2012.

These are the interval clocks. They are designed and used by train drivers. Not really for the passengers, but they like to use them too — to know the time for example.

First six digits show the time in HH:MM:SS, the last three — time in M:SS since the previous train left the station, not the time till the next one. Train drivers should know they are not late and ride according the timetable.

Since the intervals in Moscow are less than 10 minutes (mostly less than 5 min) we don't really need to know the time until the next train. First clocks for the passengers appeared in Moscow metro on the Filyovskaya line: the intervals on Mezhdunarodnaya branch are more than 10 minutes.

Firstly developed in Moscow in 1935 (when the Moscow metro opened) on award winning (Grand Prix at the 1937 Paris World's Fair) Sokolniki station:

Enter is on the left, exit is on the right. And they never cross.

But they are trying: stay started (preparing) production in St. Petersburg and Tver to help the plant in Mytishchi.

I have tested these ones. And I didn't find anything about the comfort there. Only 1.5 people can seat on each side there. Their legs are always in the passage totally blocking it. So no one can stand between the seats or even go through the passage. Everybody crowds between the doors. There is a vertical handrail in the center, but few people can use it because all the time someone stands by back to it. C'est un cauchemar. Paris roling stock is definitely not the best.

Moreover: it uses only smart cards. Reusable smart cards for long time fares (since 1998) and single-time use 'Mifare Ultralight' (since 2008 as I remember).

Yes, it is.

The article (http://www.vesti-moscow.ru/rnews.html?id=139060) said this was the first in Moscow. But isn't there a park-and-ride at Myakinino or Volokolamskaya? Or maybe this is the first P+R operated by the Moscow metro.
Well, there are some P+Rs, but it was the first operated by metro near the Annino station. And the first having special fares: large discount for parking if you have made at least two metro trips.

Yes, majority of passengers used such cards:


The other passengers (elderly and other groups of citizens) use Muscovite's Social Cards (free access to the city's public-transport system; discounts in shops and pharmacies, etc):

Can someone please explain me how such stations don't fill up with water when it rains? I've seen such entrances in many cities around the world and just can't get how they don't allow water from getting inside.

Yes. The level is a bit above the ground, some 10 cm. So the water doesn't get in.
