I was been in the trains of the Paris Metro. This is not the standard that I want to see in Moscow. Hard seats in the first and last row. Passengers sit facing each other, and I was forced to bend my long legs. These trains much worse than new trains in Moscow (although its interior look modern).

Brr..... I do not need in such French innovation.

About standart cars of the Paris Metro (I found them identical). I didn't use newest Line 14, but I'm used few other lines like Line 7, Line 8.

I'm forgot to add that according to official statistics Moscow Metro is the world's second most heavily used rapid transit system after Tokyo's twin subway (by passanger volume) and St. Petersburg Metro is the world's first most dense metro system (by the passanger volume per each kilometer of the current track ways). Therefore, the European standard for Metro trains is absolutely inapplicable to these systems.

The main goal of any transport is to carry people with a specified time schedule and comfort. In Moscow fulfilment of train schedule is 99,98 % with minimal headway - 90 seconds. Therefore, "Stalin's" trains perfectly doing own work and there is no any technical necessary for replacing of old models.

"Novokosino" may be the last station of the Moscow Metro, built by the original project. On November 22, during a visit of the construction site of "Novokosino", the new Mayor of Moscow, Sergey Sobyanin said that all future stations must be built by the typical project to accelerate the pace of construction work. It seems that Moscow Metro coming back in the era of Nikita Khrushchev's primitivism (late 1950s - 1960s), in the times of cheapest ground stations and shallow stations of typical layout, which were contemptuously dubbed "Centipedes" (which comes from the fact that early designs had 40 concrete columns in two rows).

"Pervomayskaya" - the first "Centipede" in Moscow (1961):

No. The deepest station in the world (105.5 metres) is "Arsenalnaya" ("Arsenal") in Kiev (1960).

"Arsenalnaya" ("Arsenalna", "Arsenal") is a station on Kiev Metro's Line 1. The station was opened along with the first stage and is currently the deepest station in the world (105.5 metres). This attributed to Kiev's geography where the high bank of the Dnieper River rises above the rest of the city. Also unique is the station's design which lacks a central concourse thus similar in layout to stations on the London Underground.

Although "Arsenalna" (architects H. Hranatkin, S. Krushynsky, N. Shchukina) appears as a pylon trivault, the "Pylons" along with their portals are all purely cosmetic decoration. Pink marble walls with bronze grills (that feature metallic artwork on Soviet themes) is all that is present in the portal. Instead the station has a small lobby which is directely connected to the escalator tunnel. The ride on the escalators itself is one of the longest totaling up to five minutes.

The layout of the stations has reasons, as the cosmetic pylons were planned to be real. The main one comes from the tough soils of the location and the problems with hydroisolation which forced the builders to conserve the design. Similar problems happened on the first stage in Moscow however later the stations "Lubyanka", "Chistye Prudy" (and "Paveletskaya" of the third stage) were completed. In Kiev this never was to happen. Originally built as an interim on a long track before the line crossed the Dnieper and continued into the left bank residential districts, it was never to have a large passenger traffic to justify a complex and costly reconstruction. Nor was the station ever planned to be a transfer point (unlike the Moscow stations, which ultimately was the reason for them to be rebuilt). Thus with the Kiev Arsenal Factory, for which the station was named, being the only human source of passengers, this station is likely to remain as it is permanently.

Decoratively, apart from the spoken portals, the station is monochromatic in its appearance. The plastered vault ceilings, ceramic tiled walls and the marbled "pylons" all are of white colour. At the wall of the main lobby hall was a large sculptural artwork depicting revolutionary events that took place in the Arsenal factory in 1918 however this was unfortunately removed in the early 1990s.

The station's large surface vestibule is situated on the Arsenal Square. Behind the station is a service bay that is used for nighttime stands and minor repairs to the railcar park.

According to the unofficial information, the depth of the station "Puhung" ("Revitalization") in the Pyongyang Metro is 120 meters. However, as you can understand, it's very difficult to verify this information:

Although the Pyongyang Metro map shows there are two lines, visitors from other countries are only shown a few stations on the red line and none on the green line (Hyoksin Line). Therefore, we don't really know how deep a lot of those stations may be or if that second line even exists.

In addition, there is a station in the Seikan Tunnel (between Honshu and Hokkaido) called Yoshioka-Kaitei Station which is 149.5 meters below sea level. Since it's an underwater station, this depth is difficult to compare to underground stations such as Admiralteyskaya in St Petersburg and Arsenal'naya in Kiev. Perhaps one would measure the depth below the bottom of the sea for Yoshioka-Kaitei, and I imagine that would be less than the 105 meters given for Kiev. Anyway, it's an academic point now because Yoshioka-Kaitei has not been used for regular passenger services since 2006.

BRIEF NEWS OF THE NOVOSIBIRSK METRO:

November 25, 2010. Station "Zolotaya Niva" ("Golden Cornfield") does not open after a set period of time. As I wrote earlier, this station was opened on October 7, 2010. However, after 19 days of operation, this station was closed by decision of the Court. It was found that the station was opened without official permission of Rostekhnadzor (the Federal Service for Ecological, Technological and Nuclear Supervision). The Court found a period of 30 days to address the deficiencies. However, the station was not open after this period. Now they plan to open this station before the New Year:

November 28, 2010. The new Metro train, which was made in St. Petersburg, traveled distance 3500 kilometers and arrived in Novosibirsk:

Do you perhaps mean December 30, 2011? There's no way they can finish that in one month.
