Tbilisi Down Under
Tbilisi’s subway depot teems with life, day and night. When darkness falls, only machinists go to sleep. Their intense work mandates a clear mind and a rested body. “The Waker” is the person responsible for making sure they are ready on schedule - she wakes them up. Once up, they have their morning coffee, undergo ad-hoc medical tests, check the train and prepare it for the driving shift.
The trains leaving the the station in the morning return to the depot several times during the day for regular technical check-ups. In case of damage, they are repaired and then returned to the tunnels for their service - going down through Tbilisi’s underground labyrinth.
