Russian Traction DVD
Public transit is heavily used in the former Soviet Union because the alternative (i.e., autos) is not an option for the majority. Nevertheless some urban tramways are threatened, and old cars lurch along severely battered rails. Dawn greets the amazing #10 line in St. Petersburg at 4:30 when only streetcars are moving. See trams also in Moscow, along with "art museum" caliber Metro stations, and a trollybus snarl. There is good coverage of the fascinating Omsk system where rails weave alongside dirt roads past ornate wooden residences. Also seen are Samara, Ufa, Zlatoust, Novosibirsk where trams circle through a wooded park, and three other cities. Also viewed are Ukraine-Kiev and Lvov-and, by contrast, the very modern system in Tallin, Estonia. See how business people, students, shoppers-everyone-get around by electric transit!
