Good work St. Pete! You finished a complete new line since I left the city last summer, unbelievable (though you cheated a bit by adding only three stations to existing lines ). Can't wait to see Admiraliteyskaya open (2011 I heard?), that saves a lot of walking around in the city centre!

[QUOTE=iampuking;34312336]Maybe its the finishing then, they look two shiney and shopping mall-like. Compare to the original stations which have a more matte finish which are more class-looking.


QUOTE]

Mate, some of the original stations are over 70 years old, of course they are not shiney anymore, in fact they look even worse in real life than on photos.
There are like 9 million people using Moscow underground daily, no wonder it it loooks worn down. When I saw the first photos in this thread from SPB, my first thought was "these stations are mega! but too shiney, there is no way that can stay like that, in a couple of years it will look completely different".

Anyway, it's not just the shininess that looks bad, it's the general finishes.

The fake Roman details, the garish colours, the fake gold and the fibreglass ceiling which is incongruent with the rest of the pastiche station...
I have to agree with that. Many new stations try to imitate the older ones, but the quality of finishes and other elements has obviously dropped down.
Although some new stations are actually pretty good, but it would also be nice to see more modern architectural solutions, just for a change.
On the other hand, in 10 years these stations may not look so bad.

Kazan underground was opened in August 2005 on the occasion of Kazan Millennium. It is the first underground in Russia constructed after the Soviet Union collapse. Kazan underground is the seventh in Russia and the fifteenth in the CIS.

"Prospekt Pobedy" station (opened in 2008):

KALININGRAD | Tramway

I have found some images of Kaliningrad's tram. Kaliningrad is the former Königsberg and is a part of Russia.
I don't know much about it's trams, I have only heard, that they have problems to modernise the rolling stock, because russian manufacturers don't build trams which are narrow enough and new trams from other countries are too expensive.
Perhaps someone knows more about the tram of Kaliningrad and can tell here something about it.

The photos:

Wonderful pics, thank you. Seems to be a nice city and an interesting tram system; it´s the first time I´ve seen pantographs like those. I hope they can find a source for new trams.

May I ask, does this GT6 tram will be put into service, or is it already retiered?

I'm not sure, but I think it will be put into service. Could be that it is an old tram of Mannheim's system (Germany).
