Anxious to see more shots.

I'm assuming the Imam-Khomeini station is older than the Imam-Hosein station, which looks very modern and quite opulent.

nice. these PT projects are the right way to spend tax dollars. on a side note, even if you removed the persian artwork and photographed completely a completely empty subway station; i still would go away with a vague sense of persian aesthetics. maybe the repeating geometry of the ceiling and the green color allude to it? at any rate, it adds some flavor to the usual sterility of contemporary PT architecture.

I think that Imam Khomeni is just decorated in a rather old-fashioned style. Lines 1 and 2 both opened in 2000 (Imam Hossein is on line 2, while Imam Khomeni is the interchange station between the two lines). However, planning for the metro began during the 1970s, so some of the architecture and decoration might have been inherited from older designs. (The suburban line 5 opened in 1999, so it's not exactly old either.)

Deine Beleidigungen kannst du dir sparen. Abgesehen davon geht es nicht darum was der Westen will. Ich persönlich glaube kaum, dass die Mehrheit der IranerInnen unter diesem klerikalfaschistischen Regime leben will. Und völlig unabhängig davon: Sollte der Iran zu einer Bedrohung des Westens werden, dann wird Iran die Konsequenzen spüren.

Now back to Tehran's Metro system. Some of the trains look rather old, were they already shipped before completion of the system and if so when were they constructed?
