(*)  Maximal possible train length in Moscow and St. Petersburg (in standard 19-meter cars):

                         4 cars – Butovskaya line (Moscow),

                         6 cars – Filevskaya line (Moscow) and Moskovsko-Petrogradskaya and Nevsko-Vasileostrovskaya lines (St. Petersburg),

                         8 cars – all the other lines.

Articulated cars are employed on Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya, Filevskaya, Koltsevaya, Solntsevskaya, and Butovskaya lines in Moscow and on Tsentralnaya line in Kazan.  Each articulated car is 1.4 times the length of a standard 19-meter car.  Trains consist of 5 articulated cars on Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya and Koltsevaya lines, 4 articulated cars on Filevskaya line, and 3 articulated cars on Solntsevskaya, Butovskaya, and Tsentralnaya lines.  Approximate equivalent lengths in standard cars are indicated in the “Train length by line” column of the table for these six lines.
