Every railway needs somewhere to store and repair their trains – and the Moscow Metro is no different. On my visit I travelled past one of these facilities – the электродепо (electrodepot) at Фили (Fili) on the Filyovskaya Line.
A spare carriage was parked outside the shed.
And a long ladder of tracks links the shed to the mainline – forcing the third rail that powers each train to swap sides multiple times.
While in a separate siding a collection of track maintenance machines was parked, awaiting their next job.
