But yesterday turned out an incredible holiday in honor of the 80th anniversary of the subway.
The exposition opens wagon type "A". The first type of wagon in Moscow metro.
They exploited sections - motor and trailer car. And here it is presented section.
How beautiful they are! very sorry that now is a coloring only on the retro train. I would like to see her more.
All the cars have been restored to the depot Vyhino. Of course, to put the original coupling is no longer possible, but on the whole the restoration was carried out as much as possible. But, as written in the comment together wagons type "A" are connected to the original automatic couplers.
The wagon type "G".
track geometry car. I still managed to ride on it.
A warm and analog.
The wagon type "E". The same 3605.
The contact-battery electric VEKA.
In 1991, the Leningrad Carriage-Building Plant named after Egorov (CJSC "Vagonmash") began to develop a contact-battery electric locomotives to service the needs of the Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) underground to replace outdated contact and battery electric locomotives based on wagon type D, 7 of which are on the electrodepot time operated in St. Petersburg metro. Operating conditions of contact-rechargeable electric availability demanded end doors in the driver's cab for the possibility of switching to other cars, while the cab front carriages 81-717 did not have through-passage. Therefore, as a basis, it was decided to take the body of intermediate carriages 81-714, equipping them with two cab with control panels on the sides and an additional buffer lanterns, and the passenger compartment used to house batteries.
In 1992, the plant experienced two contact-electric battery, which received the designation VEKA (car-electric contact and battery) and rooms 001 and 002. The first locomotive entered for trial operation in electrodepot "Kaluga" Moscow metro were released, and the second - electrodepot in "Moscow" St. Petersburg metro. Both locomotive was painted in yellow-brown color
While on the car says "D-806", in fact it experienced a series of wagons type "D", which is called "UM-5." But after working on the track geometry car train was only a body. From the original chassis is nothing left.
Cabs restored very minimalistic. It is understood that the instrument was more.
But the most incredible was the festive atmosphere.
They invited reenactors who played the postwar era.
On the background of the old cars it looked full immersion.
How it is beautiful!
But I was wrong about paper models. They are handed out for free.
Oh ... Sofas, linkrust ...
Immersion in the era.
It is indescribable atmosphere.
