More like people are working in metro. As of Russos - his shots were used once on official site, afair, and in official metro booklets, so you can figure out yourself that he has a pass to "for personal only" places.

Which station is this? As far as i'm aware there are only two new stations, this appears to be decorated differently.

It's strange that the esacalators are at an angle to the central hall, never seen that in Moscow before. But I agree with sarflonlad, it's more of the same.

It's a change between Turgenevskaya and Sretensky Bulvar.

There are plenty of them. Most of interchanges and also several exits, like Rimskaya or Universitet. There are also many stations with 90 deg stairway exits, especially stations built in 1930's.

I've seen stations with sets of stairs from the central hall to the bottom of the escalators, with the stairs going off in a different direction, but none where the escalators go right to the bottom of the central hall at an angle, perhaps I don't know enough.

Kolomna castle

You can wonder why here the picture of Kolomna -small town about 70 km from Moscow . You can see part of walls this former big castle . Kolomna s Kremlin was one from biggest castles in Europe with about 2 km walls built in 15-16 cent . In 1930 more 1,5 km walls of this fine castle was demolished by communists for using in Moscow metro as materials . This is one sample from dozens crimes against Russian history,when marble,granite,breaks,bronze from old arhitectural monuments ( esp from Moscow s churches and cathedrals ) demolished by communist ,was using for decoration of metro station in this time .

Moscow Subway / Metro

Does anyone have pics of the Moscow Metro (i.e. stations, rolling stock, etc)? I couldn't find a specific thread in here, other than the "Metro Stations u/c" one.

Thanks!

@iampuking
Better to use http://metrowalks.ru/moscow.
All shots on Metro.ru are bad in quality as was made long time ago. But there is a new version of this site is currently under construction that could be opened somewhere in 2008 i hope.

Old trains and new expensive stations sure do create a contrast!

They look like they were built in the 30s, but they were built in the 70s as far as I know!

Cars of Ezh and Em series were built in 1969-1980. Currently they are being replaced with 81-740/81-741 series.
