Volokolamka - "The legend station in Moscow sub"


Recently, one came true, my old dream - to visit the legendary canned station, dubbed with a light hand the journalists' Station - the ghost. "To our great happiness that happened during the traversal, when the station was working lights. Frankly, unimpressed empty platform with bare walls and columns are not made ​​for me - an association with ordinary Metrostroy, adjusted for the fact that travel by train.
Let me remind you: In the course of constructing the October field - Glider under Tushinite aeropolem was built by a typical full-fledged station trehproltnaya fine bedding. But at the start site in 75 th year, Volokolamskaya list of stations did not appear. Its opening was postponed until better times, when will be built on residential aeropole array. But because of some problems, chief among which was an abundance of groundwater and marshland, the array was never built. Recently found application in a vacant area - many years later, the project was approved to build a stadium "Spartak". The station is located in close proximity to the future of the stadium and effectively perform the function of "unloading" of passenger traffic during the games.
More information about the station can be read here .
