Hi GKomoku
In B, "those" indicates "stations". The "even those located" placed closed to "stations" because it try to means "railway stations", actually. So, use of "even those located" near to "stations" perfectly makes sense.

E says:
"the timetables use Moscow time" ---> it's an active voice. Here "timetables" is used as "doer". Really it can do something? Nope. Timetables are NOT the animal/human-being that it can do something in this planet. So, you can safely cross out E for the wrong use of active voice.
Thanks___

Hello AsadAbu

Thank you for your help, now things are clear ;)
So I can infer...

A) Timetables for all Russian railway stations use Moscow time; even those located in such-flung locales as magadan are eight time zones east of
(is out as explained above, "those" is demostrative pronouns should be followed the noun it modifiys, or as close as pissible to it - "timetable" is too far)

B) Moscow time is used for timetables at all Russian railway stations - even those located in such far- flung areas as Magadan, eight time zones east of.


C) The timetables use Moscow time at all Russian railway stations- even though locations in such far-flung areas as magadan are eight time zones east from
(same mistake as explained)

D) MOSCOW time is used at Russian railway stations for all timetables - even those locations in areas as far-flung as magadan, eight time zones to east from
(two IC connected with "-" dash is incorrect)

E) At all Russian railway stations, the timetables use Moscow time even in locations that are in such far-flung areas as Magadan, which is eight time zones to the east of
(same mistake as explained)

D) MOSCOW time is used at Russian railway stations for all timetables [color=#ff0000]-
even those locations in areas as far-flung as magadan, eight time zones to east from
(two IC connected with "-" dash is incorrect)

In A, "those" is used as "stations". The "railway stations" should be as closet as "those"
In D, There is no problem using "dash" middle of the 2 independent clauses. It depends on the meaning of the sentence. If the sentence demands then you can use "dash" in 2 independent clauses. But, unfortunately, there is no use of 2 independent clauses in D.

Using "those" closed to "timetables" makes the sentence confusing.

Thank you AsadAbu,

one more time :facepalm:

(is out as explained above timetables-use, "those" is demostrative pronouns should be followed the noun it modifiys, or as close as pissible to it - "railway stations" is too far)

C) The timetables use Moscow time at all Russian railway stations- even though locations in such far-flung areas as magadan are eight time zones east from
(same mistake as explained)

D) MOSCOW time is used at Russian railway stations for all timetables - even those locations in areas as far-flung as magadan, eight time zones to east from
("those locataions" has to be as close to "railway stations to make meaning clear)

E) At all Russian railway stations, the timetables use Moscow time even in locations that are in such far-flung areas as Magadan, which is eight time zones to the east of
(same mistake as explained)

as in (C) and (D) dash "-" between 2 IC is fine?
seems fine...

(A), (C) and (E) are incorrect because "Timetables...use Moscow time" doesn't make sense. Moscow time is used for timetables is the correct meaning!
(D) is incorrect because the pronoun "those" refers to the noun railway stations, which is unnecessarily far away from the pronoun "those".
Hence (B) is the correct answer!
