Construction.ru was told today by the press-service of the subway that 80 years ago the first line, of 13 stations, was put into operation in Moscow from Sokolniki to Park Kultury (Gorky Central Recreation and Leisure Park). At Partizanskaya, an exhibition of old trains that ran at that time was opened. Since May 13th, a “personalized” train dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the Moscow Metro has been running. All its 8 carriages are painted with the colours of the Metro lines, while inside one can see portraits of those people who designed and constructed the Metro, and learn the history of the stations and carriages. Moscow Metro now has 12 lines 327 km long with 196 stations. Every day more than 7m passengers use the Metro, and on weekdays this number is over 9m people, which is the absolute world record.
