Moscow Metro’s New Victory Train
This post is part of my 70 YEARS OF THE GREAT VICTORY MARATHON
(You can see all posts under category: 70 Years of Great Victory)
English: A very unusual train appeared on the Serpukhovo-Timiryazevskaya line of the Moscow Metro, to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Great Victory in WWII, which will be celebrated on May 9th on Red Square. One of the train’s carriages is painted with various episodes of the heroic defence of Moscow in 1941. For that Moscow became one of the first 4 cities to receive the title of the “Hero City.” Each carriage is dedicated to one of the Hero Cities, including, Odessa, Leningrad, Stalingrad, Fortress Brest (Belarus), Sevastopol (Crimea), etc. One can freely walk between carriages to see the entire exhibit. In this one of a kind train, even station arrivals are announced by the famed singer, Yosif Kobzon.
Russian: На Серпуховско-Тимирязевской ветке московского метрополитена запустили праздничный поезд, посвященный 70-летию Победы. Поезд имеет сквозной проход между вагонами, каждый из которых посвящен одному из городов-героев, а станции в составе объявляет Иосиф Кобзон.
