AlekseyVT, I am not sure if you have posted this, but when Aeroexpress opens the downtown terminal at Kalanchayevskaya, are there going to be through trains SVO-DME with an intermediate stop at the downtown terminal for transfer to metro, RZD and VKO-bound trains? Or will travelers transfering between SVO and DME have to change trains downtown? And will there be convenient cross-platform transfers for travelers with baggage?

I don't know if any of these details have been released pertaining to the logistics of this plan. I would be really curious to know.

I'm think it will be important for international flights. For the passengers from the other Russian cities and towns, who currently come to Moscow (by train or by plane) and then go to the airport for international flight.

Yes, but if you want to go from one airport to another, then currently you must use the system Aeroexpress-Metro-Aeroexpress. It can be inconvenient if you have luggage, it takes more time and costs 320+28+320 = 668 Roubles (~ 24 USD).

Sorry, I didn't see detailed plan. In any case cross-platform interchange is more comfortable than current variant (via Metro).

MOSCOW METRO

April 21, 2011. The first 5-carriages Rusich train began to operate at Ring Line. Before this day at Ring Line worked only 6-carriages old trains (81-717/714) and 4-carriages Rusich trains. Thus, the capacity of this train was increased on 216 persons. According to plan, in 2011 all trains on the Ring Line will be replaced with new 5-carriages Rusich trains.

what do those Rusich trains on the Ring Line have in their electronic destination display? Does that say marshrut (route)? Shouldn't it just say clockwise or counter-clockwise? Ring Line doesn't have a destination.

Yes, it's say "marshrut" (route).

Route number is information for the staff of Metro, not for passengers. Each route has its own daily timetable. Route number is also required for supervisory control of trains on the line, for the radio talks between the dispatcher and drivers (something like "number 11, listen my command").

By the way, this is a project of new terminal of Vladivostok International Airport with Aeroexpress station:

AERIAL LIFT IN RUSSIA

As I wrote before, the funicular is an exotic kind of transport in Russia. Currently there is operate only one funicular in Russia - in Vladivostok (funicular of the former Voroshilov Sanatorium in Sochi was dismantled, and Ordzhonikidze Sanatorium closed for renovation, so the future of second Sochi funicular is unknown).

So let's talk about the more common kind of transport - aerial lift.

The history of construction of aerial lifts for passangers in former Soviet Union started in late 1940s. The first Soviet aerial lift was opened in 1946 in Zestafoni, Georgia. In 1950s were opened aerial lifts in the other Georgian cities (Chiatura, Tbilisi and others). In 1970s Soviets manufactured aerial lifts for Black Sea coast of Caucasus and Crimea, ski resorts of Mount Elbrus, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Georgia and Armenia. However, after Soviet collapse designing and manufacture of the own aerial lifts was terminated.

After the popularization of alpine skiing in Russia began a big demand for aerial lifts. Previously, in 1990s Russians had bought only second-hand foreign equipment, which were installed at the alpine ski resorts after a some cosmetic and technical repairs. However, recently the situation has changed dramatically. The main foreign producer at Russian market is Austrian-Swiss company "Doppelmayr Garaventa Group". In particular, this company will participate in the construction of aerial lifts in the Sochi for 2014 Winter Olympics. In 1997 SKADO (Samara Aerial Lifts) company (founded in 1939) become Russian subsidiary of "Doppelmayr Garaventa Group".

Currently in Russia operate near 400 aerial lifts at the 109 resorts in the European part of Russia and 49 - in the Asian.
