Image description

The image shows a subway wagon, viewed from the profile, represented in the form of a rectangular box, with rounded corners.

At the base of it are two pairs of wheels, on the left and right edge, one of them illustrated in profile and rendered as thick circles fastened by a thick line, representing the iron rod, which joins the wagon from others.

The outer skeleton of the wagon, also called the body, is represented in full relief.

The two windows, together with the three double doors that surround them, are contoured by hollow lines, thickened, in the form of rectangles positioned vertically, for doors, and horizontal, for windows.

The windows are highlighted by texture of oblique and parallel lines.
Downstairs, in the central part, is a man, standing, illustrated to facilitate the ratio of the dimensions of a wagon to the size of an adult.

Additional data
Industrialization was one of the greatest promises of communism and perhaps the only one that succeeded. In the case of 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 Depression era in 1952, but without success. Only in 1971, the Popular Council of the Municipality of Bucharest was to set up a commission that had the role of documenting 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 has begun.
