Image description

The image above shows a subway wagon, seen from side, represented in the shape of a rectangle with rounded corners.

At its base are four pairs of wheels, in the left and right edge, from side being illustrated two and marked by blank circles bond by a thickened line.

The outer skeleton of the wagon, also called the car body, is shown embossed.

The two windows, in the middle, to the left and right of the central door, are highlighted by two horizontal and blank rectangles.

The windows of the three double doors are marked by vertical rectangles filled with the texture of oblique and parallel lines.

The image below shows, from above, the inside of a subway wagon, represented as a rectangle, outlined by a thickened line.

Along the contour line, fixed along the walls of the wagon, are the seats with backrests for passengers, placed next to each other, grouped as follows:

  • at the top, from left to right, are two, followed by a double door, then five, followed by the central double door, and another five, finished with a third double door and two more seats;
  • at the bottom, from left to right, after an empty space and a double door, five are placed, followed by the central double door, then another five, followed by the third double door, and completed with two more, in the lower right corner.

The seats are marked by embossed squares.

The left and right edges of the wagon, delimited by dashed lines, represent the connection with the other wagons.

General information

Industrialization was one of the greatest promises of communism and perhaps the only one that succeeded. For Romania, the communist period would undergo major changes and modernization in the field of industry. One of the most important implementations was the construction of an underground transport system.
Since 1908, a plan for the construction of a subway line in Bucharest appears, through Dimitrie Leonida’s license work.

However, the plan to build the underground network would start to be implemented much later.
There was an attempt to start the project even in the era of 1952, but without success. Only in 1971, the Popular Council of the Municipality of Bucharest was to set up a commission to document the implementation of the underground transport system.

Three years later, in 1974 it was officially decided to start the construction, which would have three buses: Stăvilarul Ciurel – Titan (bus I), Pipera – Berceni (bus II), and the third bus would connect all the city’s districts. Next year, the project was started.
