The new Metro stations in St. Petersburg are more interesting that in Moscow.

But speaking in general - in my opinion (and many natives of St. Petersburg agree with it), ill-considered introduction of the New Information Space (informational columns and indexes with English text) hopelessly ruined architecture and aesthetics of the old St. Petersburg stations.

That isn't big problem (in my opinion)!
More frightening is if the stations are so similar to one another - like in Moscow planned stations on the yellow line in the city center! I hope the metro in St. Petersburg to maintain its appearance and beautiful architecture. Much of stantions are works of art. It is true that the function of the subway is to transport a lot of people for a short time out of traffic, but it is nice to retain and traditions.
Pity that Moscow does not want to maintain their traditions. It was known for his nice stantions.

Not quite so. The prototypes for PSDs were stations of the so-called "horizontal lift" type in Leningrad. It were first such stations in the world. Its advantages was reduction of the cost and time of construction works as these stations haven't side platforms. During 1961-1972, there were built 10 such stations at the Line 2 and Line 3. Unlike other platform screen doors, which are lightweight units with extensive glazing installed a normal platform edge, the St Petersburg units give the appearance of a solid wall with heavyweight doorways and solid steel sliding doors, like exist for a bank of elevators in a large building, and the train cannot be seen entering from the platform; passengers become familiar with the sound alone to indicate a train arrival.

However, these stations have many disadvantages. The operation of these stations is more difficult and expensive. There is need additional maintenance for equipment of the station doors. It's need to accurately combine doors of train and station during the stopping. As result, it lead to the increasing of the time of stop and intervals between the trains. Due to lack of side platforms, the square of such stations in three times less than square of ordinary stations. Also, it's necessary to use only Metro trains with strictly defined configuration of doors.

As result, in 1970s they phased out the construction of this type of stations. In the world this idea was transformed into construction of PSDs.

Typical construction of the "horizontal lift" station:

Metro station "Mayakovskaya" ("Vladimir Mayakovsky"; Line 3; opened on November 3, 1967):

The active construction of new airport terminal for LED is going now. But now, when its readiness is no more than half, it's a little premature to build a station for transport communication with new terminal. In addition, the exact project of transport complex is not yet approved.

As far as being "premature", that's not true. It is a well-known fact in Europe that LHR Terminal 5 was built concurrently with the London Underground station on the Picadilly Line, and it is expected that the new airport in Berlin will open simultaneously with the S-bahn extension later this year. In fact, building the transport links along with the new airport at the same time is probably the most efficient way of going about these things, since it minimizes the disruption that could occur to passengers at an active terminal. But for whatever reason, when it comes to St Petersburg, there is no money or political will to create the types of connections that are already in progress in much smaller Russian cities.

Dear AlekseyVT,
I hope you can answer some questions about a Russian Tram # 106 single axle trucks currently in the San Francisco USA Municipal railway collection. It hasn't been used in quite awhile as it tracks very poorly on the rails and I was hoping to find out some technical information so as to solve the problem. the one thing I noticed was that the tires had virtually no taper to them which didn't seem correct. also it has a very unique truck style, using single axle trucks with the pivot point or king pin set behind the wheel instead of directly in the center of the truck as with most tram trucks. this gives a caster wheel action for the trailing truck but as the front truck has it's pivot point behind the axle ,it seems it would result in pushing the truck to side.I'd like to post some pictures of but so far haven't figured out how.
I hope you can help on this unique car ( actually given to the city by the people of Russia (I think back in the 1980's) bud44750
