Pobedy

From the same roll as yesterdays upload, a scene I would revisit several times a week as I had a client in the district, Park Pobedy metro station on the Arbatsko–Pokrovskaya line.

One of the newer stations, at 84 meters underground Park Pobedy is the deepest station in Moscow and fourth deepest in the world, with a 126 meter escalator containing 740 steps it was always interesting when it broke down given that it took 3 minutes to reach the surface when all was working as it should.
Something that impressed me was how efficient the service was, this photograph was taken during rush hour, seconds earlier the platform was heaving with commuters as it was moments later.
