The blonde was cute. And the brunette? I though that was a little kid at first.

I'd pull her flaps shut, if you know what I mean.

So who else was expecting a really close fitting 'whatever' encircling the tunnel, say about 3"-6" of clearance & the blonde comes back as a headless torso?

/would be a complete waste of a cute blonde though

Tyee: Fake, Russian women never looked that good.

I'm wondering if they might actually be tourists considering the suitcase and their apparently curiosity about the lack of doors.

I don't know what station that is.  There are very few stations where the tracks don't run either side-by-side or on opposite sides of a central platform.  The closing-door warning was muddled.  I think that said "next station Cherkizokskaya", which means its on the red line (line 1).

It's probably in the terminal station for that line, Ulitsa Podbelskogo - which might explain why you don't see the other track.

Экстрим в метро спб [Extreme sports in the metro St. Petersburg ]

newsru.com: ВИДЕО о поезде, мчащемся по туннелю с открытыми дверьми, указало на серьезные проблемы в метро Петербурга

google translation:

VIDEO about a train racing through a tunnel with open doors, pointed to serious problems in the metro St. Petersburg

Potentially extremely dangerous incident happened in Saint Petersburg metro. In one of the cars of a train running on the "Kirov-Vyborg" line, there was a problem in the closing of the doors, which is why passengers risked falling back on track while driving. Reporters learned that the incident - not an accident.

The incident took place in early June, but became aware of it only after the video hit the internet of one of the witnesses, and the leadership of the subway had to comment on the incident. Late in the evening of June 4 from the station "Ploshchad Lenina" towards "Chernishevskaya" moved up, in one of the cars which have been opened all the doors - on both sides.

Fortunately, the people at a late hour was not enough, so that no one ventured to fall out because of the crush of emergency car. However, some passengers did not appreciate the kindness of Fortune and decided to risk his life voluntarily. Two girls illogically rose from their seats, came to the doorway and began to admire the streaking past the walls of the tunnel. Video by also being left out to make rare footage, he stuck out his hand out of the car with the phone, and at the risk of losing the gadget, and most extremities.
...
Public interest in the incident forced the Petersburg Metro explained. The train did not work automation, and signal the doors are open and do not get in the driver panel, said "Karpovka" representative of the subway. He also said that no one was hurt, as the measures were taken immediately: one of the passengers said the fault machinist, and he dropped all the same at the next station, and he led off the train at the depot.

Aha, not Moscow at all.

(it's been 20 years, I do better with spoken Russian than written Russian sometimes...)

I'd like to keep my penis safe inside that blonde while in transit
 
2013-06-19 08:51:38 PM
I can say that my first instinct would not be to get up and stick my head out of the door.

Good air flow to help passengers be cool.

I think that's St. Pete. They have a different announcer guy than Moscow. Also that metro is infinitely more ghetto than the Moscow one.

Is this what passes for scary these days?

I rode the Sydney equivalent to school when I was a kid. Manual doors (usually left open because of the heat), more crowded that that Moscow train and a lot faster on some lines, especially for express services. Never once thought of it as scary - it was actually a lot of fun, with the bonus being that if you were running late you could still get on your train by diving through the doors.

^This

I remember in high school and college taking the Long Island RR's old diesel lines, and they ran with the doors open between stops.  You could stand there, the conductor would just tell you the next stop and to please hold on to something and be careful.  people used to just stand there and smoke.

Now, you can't even watch out the front of LIRR trains 'because of safety rules'.  farking sucks.

And if someone died, instead of saying, "Wow, that dumbass shouldn't have stuck his head out there," tons of people would blame the transit authority (or its non-union Russian equivalent).  "It's an open door on a fast-moving subway car.  How are people supposed to not stick their heads out of it?  How could anyone know it's dangerous?  They aren't subway workers!"

Then again, I come from a country that has to put "Do not attempt" at the bottom of every commercial lest someone try to drive from New York to Portugal and sue when they can't.
