Pyatnitskoe shosse is very stylish. And the glass entrance looks very similar to what I have here in Hangzhou.

In conversations among themselves, ordinary citizens are tended to use colours of lines at the official Moscow Metro Map (like "red line", "green line", "blue line", etc). In other Russian cities, it's even more simpler because vast majority of Russian Metro systems consists of either 1 or 2 Metro lines.

Right.

Abbreviations (like APL, LDL, KRL, TKL, etc) are using either in official documents and reports or during the conversations between specialists / knowledgeable people.

I've seen in the news references to "branches" such as зеленая ветка (Green Branch) which I thought was weird. I assume this is only something journalists would say - that is, Moscow metro passengers would say green line and not green branch.

Cool, thanks!

Do the ppl use also 'light' and 'dark' like line 3 would be 'dark blue' and line 4 'light blue'. And what about line 11 which is greenish-blueish?

Zamoskvoretskaya Line - 1,362,599 passengers

Arbbatsko-Pokrovskaya Line - 800,504 passengers

Filyovskaya Line - 355,180 passengers

Koltsevaya Line - 832,862 passengers

Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya Line - 1,399,472 passengers

Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya Line - 1,449,222 passengers

Kaliniskaya Line - 419,842 passengers

Serpukhovsko-Timiryazevskaya Line - 1,092,949 passengers

A few questions (hope someone can answer):
Why do so little people use the APL???
How come so little people use the Koltsevaya Line???
How can the Kalininskaya Line possibly have more passengers than the LDL and Filyovskaya Line???

The term "branch" is using by vast majority of passengers and many illiterate journalists (unfortunately, their number gets bigger every year). So, majority of passengers says "green branch" instead of "green line". I decided not to specify these strangeness of Russian speech for English-speaking forumers, but thank you for addition.

In Russian language, "siniy" (синий) is correct word for blue color (Line 3) and "goluboy" (голубой) is correct word for sky blue colour (Line 4). According to rules of Russian language, there is no any necessary to add adjectives "dark" and "light" in this case.

This is very specific line and uses very rarely in common speech. Except "Varshavskaya", all other stations have transfers to other lines. That's why this line is extremely rarely mentioned as separate line, and there is no any special "colour name" for it.

The same story with L1 - people prefer to name it "Butovskaya Line" or "light Metro".

I often times call them branches (vetki). Doesn't seem weird.

It's common example of Russian slang.

It's weird and illiterate because branches ("vetki") are located on the trees, and lines are located in Metro. In railway transport, branch line is a secondary railway line which branches off a more important through route, usually a main line. So, in Metro term "branch" can be applied only to the service line (for example, "branch line to Metro depot"), but not for the whole line!

It's not slang. That's what Dal' called The Living Language. Metro is seeing as a unite body that have threads. Thread is actually a direct translation of the word Vetka (or Vetv'). The word Vetka in a meaning of metro line is extremely popular. I'd say 40/60 to Liniya (line). On surface/surburban/intercity railway lines the word line is not being used at all. There is a word Napravleniye (direction).

AlexeyVT, you're making a mistake by trying to explain something with the help of the English language. A branch may seem weird in English but Vetka in Russia is ok.

Thread is nitka.
Branch is vetka.

Neither one really makes sense in relation to a metro line, but they're commonly used in Moscow, so who are we to judge?

What do I have to explain to you?

Ветка означает ответвление от чего-либо. Так отчего ответвляются линии метро?

The FACT what you never see term "branch" in any official documents, there is no such official term. This word exist only in the popular speech. But if you think it's OK - well, it's your right.

Ты не найдёшь этого слова в любом официальном документе (в том смысле, в котором ты его используешь). Потому что этот термин не существует в реальности и используется только в русском сленге (новоязе). Но если ты считаешь, что это "круто" использовать такие словечки, то, конечно, никто не может запретить тебе делать это.

На этом я предлагаю остановить эту бесполезную дискуссию и вернуться к более интересным новостям.

Сленг и новояз - вещи абсолютно разные. Это скорее городской жаргон.

Slang and jargon are different items. And I don't mind the word vetka is not used in official documents. That fact doesn't prove it to be incorrect ot whatever.
