Russian Railways Want to Bring down Ancient Depot

 The public organization Archnadzor has accused the Russian Railways JSC of preparation for pulling down the historical building of Circular Locomotive Depot of the Nikolayev railway built in the mid 19th century in Moscow.

      The circular locomotive depot located at the address 3/30, Komsomolskaya Square, was designed by the well-known architect Konstantin Ton and built in 1847-1851 and since 1991 has got the status of a cultural heritage site.

      As Archnadzor is warning, instead of the Circular Depot the Russian Railway JSC plans to lay down the 4th main line in the zone Moscow-Kryukovo. Moreover, the corresponding marking can already be seen on the walls of the historical building.
