On Friday, the Moscow subway system launched a new promotional train on its Zamoskvoretskaya Line called “Times and Epochs,” where different cars are dedicated to five different historical eras, ranging from antiquity to the 20th century. The train is named after an annual historical reenactment festival organized by the city of Moscow.

On the first day of the promotion, reenactors boarded the train in full costume, posing for photos with passengers.

The “Times and Epochs” History Fest will take place in Moscow next month, from June 1 to June 12.

The Moscow subway system regularly redecorates for different promotions. For instance, earlier this year it painted some train cars with images from famous Russian and Soviet films for a project called “Legends of Cinema.”
