All the advantages and disadvantages of the new trains of the Moscow metro
in Moscow on Friday launched the best in the universe of a subway train. At least the mayor in his speech, tried to convince everyone in this. In the best tradition of innovative product design, almost the entire train dotted with screens and LEDs, against which actual achievement fade.
Finally, we began to make the through-train! This is perhaps the main advantage of the new composition. Due to this increased capacity, and just became more convenient:
In Moscow already go through several compositions were created generally for Baku, and with them was an interesting problem: the air sign in the beginning of the train, but in the end he had somewhere to go ... this time was not thought, why had problems with the doors - they exerted a lot of pressure. They say the problem is now eliminated, but it is - I do not know). Probably just due to air conditioners.
Handrails in the passages
You have to be a Muscovite 80 level, to stand on the ground near the door and did not fall - at the center of the rail until it was not, and the lead in the subway sometimes dashing. Glory to God subway - is finally in this place there were handrails. Plus, the contact point is rubberized, grasping for them was nice and warm:
Doors become wider, while the gap - less
Another plus new cars - increased aperture doors are now ramming in Vyhino will be more convenient! Although two men were held at a time in the old trains, because they are new:
Did broadening between the door and the platform. Good, but it looks a little collective, although the platform still it is not so much:
Train rides smoother and quieter than previous models Mytishchi plant, even from the transition is not scary sounds. But until smooth Skoda and other foreign trains are still far away.
Navigation at the door
The train is able to suggest which side exit - in the program display arrows added:
Display station was cleaner and nicer - apparently, the factory finally consulted with designers:
The lighting in the train can be operated in two modes: day and night. I will not say exactly what kind of light in the photo, but the overall ride is nice. But the fire alarm sticks are not very nice:
Very cool that the Department of Transport is actively energetically promoting this event. Here is important is not the fact of the new trains, but rather a listing of public transport in the face of new cars:
Again, the details of all the spoil. It was necessary so to defile the appearance of the train LEDs. Why not just make the logo backlight white, like Eplan? Why focus on passenger service information: train number and direction?
Because of all these screens the train perceived as a stand in the store Eldorado:
I want to believe that with time will be removed from the muzzle inscriptions Moscow - it is clear that they are unnecessary and have been stuck at the last minute. About the banality of the name even does not want to write.
On the side is very conspicuous small size windows. Train directly shouting about it, and it's bad. Fortunately, the tunnel can not see it, and open the doors not so evident - not all passengers will notice.
Photos train layout with ENEA
From the rounded shape to the left strict rectangles. I think it's a step back and simplify. Has its own beauty in the rounded openings:
If you thought that the extreme innovation and branding over, then here's salon:
Happy one - the train will run in the Violet Metro Line, so availability will not be enough, and the shrimp will not be as an eyesore. But the very desire to cram in any part of the logo is already annoying.
The trains were yusb charging. It seems a nice little thing, if you do not take into account the placement of 4 connectors on the places for 2 people. Apparently, it will battle for the ports and the ability to get up close with the phone:
People with charging will block access to the screen, but more on this later
Another problem - charging only 0, 5A. Do you want to charge the phone? Ride along line 3 hours:
The train stuffed screens. It was stuffed. The first - for navigation, but only in the metro. Scheme Incidentally, informal.
The thing is expensive and useless - in a moment of such navigation can use just one person. But what to do - officials like everything is new and innovative, even if this is unnecessary or not desired:
For comparison, a conventional wall chart helps build a route all around at any one time:
Second - small screens under the ceiling for advertising:
And now the unexpected moment - monitors above the doors for direct display on the other station and tram no. Maybe not enough monitors, and perhaps the desire to do well. It is a pity.
New trains - that's good. to remove the excess from the muzzle of the train design to be discreet and less irritating, and will be very good. Not for nothing at all video renderers and train without a Christmas tree in front
In 2017 for Violet Metro Line 33 will go composition. Total comes to 2020 114 trains Moscow. Hedgehogs lamp will soon go down in history.
