A “Science Train” will soon hit the tracks in the Moscow Metro, according to a TASS report that cited an announcement by Michael Bird, director of the British Council in Russia.

“The train will be decorated with quotations of famous British scientists and illustrations of their key achievements,” Bird said, noting that the train is part of a joint project between the British Council and the Moscow Metro.

The London Underground in turn is planning to launch a similar train celebrating the achievements of Russian scientists.

The Moscow Metro launched a Shakespeare-themed train in May 2016.
