Metrowagonmash, which is part of the locomotive and railway equipment developer Transmashholding, will produce 768 next-generation metro wagons for the Moscow Metro by 2020, a company representative told Rambler News Service.

“A total of 768 cars of the 81-765/766/767 ‘Moscow’ model will be delivered. The project is scheduled for completion by 2020… and the first shipments began in January 2017,” the spokesperson said.

The Moscow Metro presented the “Moscow” model wagon on Sept. 9, and the trains began operation on the Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya metro line in early 2017.
