One of the oldest escalators in the whole Moscow metro system is now being repaired. It is at Baumanskaya station. The info says the work will be completed by late August. If not, there will be a hell over there as the station is very deep and has got just one entrance, moreover, ere is a huge university nearby. So they absolutely must complete it before the academic year starts.





10 .07. 2012. Taken some 1,5 hours ago.

This is probably just a minor fix. The major overhaul/complete replacement is supposed to happen in 2013/2014.

Free WiFi speed. Not for torrents, but fine enough for smartphones and tablets.

Works all around circle line including tunnels.

In fact is is not all so good. During rush hours it often comes that you can't load a web page, I've tested it often times on my iPad, iPhone 4 and 4s, Samsung Galaxy S and Samsung Galaxy S II as well as on Lumia 800. Megafon 3G is much better in metro, indeed.

Unlike Beeline, Megafon and MTS are available on stations with little coverage in tunnels. So you hardly was able to load anything on Megafon. Beeline covers more than 80% of tunnels. But on circle line MTS is best. And WiFi is 3G wrapped by routers installed in every car. There are problems sometimes. I had once and it wasn't in peak hour. But still most time it works and much better than Megafon and Beeline.

I can't believe there will be platform-edge doors in Moscow!!!(Sorry, no pics). The bare tunnel wall will be clearly visible when there's no train in the station. That isn't like Moscow!

It's visible now without PSDs when there's no train in the station.

I imagine it's the winter? Though I never had to deal with the harsh winters of Moscow (or Maine for that matter) so I wouldn't know.

But they use air curtain with heating and such doors at the entrance to the vestibule for protection from cold temperatures. These doors are located at the entrance before the ticket office and the turnstiles. It's first time when these doors were installed directly on the platform. It's difficult to understand why need to create additional obstacle for passengers.

Airflow control I would suppose. Here in Norway they can use revolving doors since they are perfect for handling airflow but are not good to handle high number of people.

I think travelling dude meant that the station walls will have no design and bare tubings will be seen. It's all because we've seen renders of new stations on Line 8 with PSDs and no station wall design; looks quite bad, I say.

That's an interesting track wall surface cladding...with holes inside. Is it permanent?

I agree, I've used megafon and MTS and I can say that the MTS had much better coverage on stations.

Well, I've got all the 3 operators and 4 handsets and Megafon is way better as I can see it almost every day. Yeah, MTS is good on the ring line, I agree, but still, it is good in terms of coverage. The capacity of Megafon's network is far in the front.

Beeline is my second favourite but bit by bit it is getting worse. One again, almost excellent coverage vut low capacity - and mostly only EDGE while Megafon has almost everywhere where it is present, HSDPA/HSUPA.

I agree that both Megafon and MTS work only at stations, but the capacity is different.

MTS's wi-fi is satisfactory whilst few people are in train. During rush hours 3,5G by megafon at stations provide much better speed than MTS's wi-fi. I often upload pictures from cell-phones.

Back on topic. Sorry for a poor quality, I took the picture from the plane some 3 hours ago, the filename features 1105... but it was actually Shanghai time zone.
