|5022||On route 29 towards Krasny Khutor.
There is virtually no roadway here on Tashkentskaya as yet,
making the cityscape look quite countrylike.
|5023||Short of the Dnepr metro station,
going southward along Naberezhnoe Shosse, towards Most Patona.
Apart from the tram, there are the typical Soviet-era artifacts:
automatic vending machines dispensing soda water (plain for 1 kopek,
or with syrup for 3 kopeks) and a sculpture depicting
happy Soviet sportsmen rushing forward in their sailboat.
|5024||A pretty standard location for tramfans,
the northern loop at Kontraktovaya Ploschad.
An MTV-82 standing behind must be on its pullout trip, since
the circular route B, which is what its route sign shows,
did not run here (it used the tracks connecting the two loops,
on Konstantinovskaya and Mezhigorskaya).
|5025||At the Bulvar Druzhby Narodov stop,
leaving Naberezhnoe Shosse for Most Patona.
Going in the opposite direction is the then brand-new car 5606
on route 31.|
|5026||The eastern part of Prospekt Vossoedineniya,
at the Zavod Vulkan stop. The tram goes west, towards Most Patona and Podol.
|5027||A two-car train serving route 33 turns onto
Ulitsa Sosyury, towards the Leningradskaya Ploschad stop.
Buildings in the background belong to the ATP-13034, nowadays
known as the Bus Depot No. 2.
On the far right, next to the Dom Radio (Radio House) store,
which occupied the ground floor of a typical Soviet nine-floor
apartment house, there is another T2.
|5028||Once again on Prospekt Vossoedineniya,
at the Bereznyaki stop. Attached to the passenger shelter
is a stop sign in the typical design of the time
(they were yellow). Behind the tram, one can see an upgrade,
as the avenue raises towards the bridge and crosses over
the railroad tracks of the Northern Ring.|
|5029||Approaching the Komsomolskaya (today Chernigovskaya)
metro station, from the area of Voskresenka.
It is possible to take a similar picture on this spot nowadays,
except that many "foreign" objects will unavoidably be in the frame:
kiosks, people, cars, garbage...
|5030||Turning from Kominterna onto Zhadanovskogo
(Zhilyanskaya); the has just begun its run on route 13
from Vokzal towards Podol. The women with a child an an alert
militiaman on the opposite corner have likely noted the photographer...
|5031||Going through the washing machine
in the Darnitsa depot. The fleet number on the front panel
is composed in the font which was in use at the end of the 60s
— beginning of the 70s; it was then replaced with
a different one, featuring numbers of a more rounded shape.
|5033||Heading a two-car set,
probably 5033+5041. This car, as well as all the later ones,
later, did not have color lenses for route designation
(those can be visible on cars 5017–5031, which were delivered in 1961).
In the background there a whole queue of trams waiting to
disembark and receive passengers...
|5034||At the Komsomolskaya (Chernigovskaya) metro station.
Route 29, at the time, began at the Miropolskaya loop,
a few stops north of this place. Visible on the right are two
poles carrying stop signs (the inscription on the second one, closer
to the photographer, is, most probably, "The second train stops here"),
with a characteristic red-and-yellow cube on the top.
|5035||An already-familiar picture in the workshop
of the Darnitsa depot.|
|5037||On the territory of that same depot.
The inscription on a card in the top left, behind the
front glass, reads "Road security watch".
Note that the route number in the sign window is less visible
than the fleet number — although it is the former only that
is of interest for an overwhelming majority of the passengers...
|5038||A view from the passenger platform
of the Dnepr metro station. The passengers exiting both cars
are proceeding towards the metro entrance.
The building in the background is the former temporary
metro depot, which was in use together with a special car lift,
which brought the cars up and onto the line.
|5039||A tram on route 32 has passed Pochtovaya Ploschad
and is about to turn from Naberezhno-Kreschatitskaya into the quarters
of Podol. In the background one can see the spire of the Rechnoy Vokzal
building and the Dnieper slopes, with the Peoples' Friendship Arch
and the Dynamo stadium lighting masts.|
|5040||At the intersection of Sosyury
and Sergienko, near Leningradskaya Plochad.
The T3 5193 on the opposite track must be broken down, as
it is being pulled into the depot by a service car.|
