New Moscow Subway -- April Fool's Day, 1992
The Russian Moskovskaya Pravda revealed that plans had been finalized to build a second subway system in Moscow. This was being done "in the interests of competition." The paper made this announcement in a special March 32nd edition titled Moskovskaya Nye-Pravda (Moscow Un-Truth).
Of course the real thing was done in New York City starting in the 1920s, with the city-owned IND (Independent), today's NYC Subway lines A thru G (actually a 3rd system, after the privately-held IRT and BMT).Posted by Otto Ihnishyn on Sat Apr 01, 2006 at 07:17 PM
Ha ha, that was a nice bit of wry humor on the Russians' part.Posted by Ben in Orange Park, FL on Sun Apr 01, 2007 at 05:55 PM
