Unfortunately. There were already some graffiti in the tunnel when it opened.
The same can be said for the wall after Quai de la Rapée on line 5.
After the big renovation during summer, walls were clean, repainted in white.
Now, these walls are covered with graffiti.

I am currently in Lyon, the metro tunnels are free of graffiti, clean.

Oh wow, then I guess that means the NS 93 has a slightly wider width than the MP 89 too? They look virtually identical (except interior). Where was the NS 93 built?

That's good that Lyon is not riddled with graffiti. I'm guessing that the tunnel along M12 to Front Populaire also has some graffiti by now.

No, that means that the NS74 is wider than the NS93

The MP89, the NS93 and the MP89TL in Lausanne (CH) use the same carbody and have the same width (but the Santiago cars are noticeably higher because of their reinforced ventilation on the roof). As a result, in Santiago, a section was added to fill the gap between the train doors and the platform in the stations (you can clearly see that on this picture from Wikipedia).

The NS93 was put into service in Santiago a few months before the MP89 in Paris. But sorry I don't remember where they were built (probably La Rochelle but i'm not 100% sure).

Denfert-Rochereau
They added screens with the next arrival of the RER B in the northbound platform of the line 4.

I have taken the picture from a northbound line 4 train.

I have never seen Montparnasse Bienvenue with so few people.
The frequencies are also quite low, I wonder when it was taken.
Late night or very early morning?

It's very nice to see that the station is in very good shape. Looks like is in maintenance.

It's sad that the MP 59, MF 67, and MF 77 are constantly targeted by vandals.

On a more positive note, Symbioz mentioned that MF 01 #110 should be brought into service later in the month.

Just wait til the newer trains become consistent targets for larger-scale vandalism.

No, never. Balard the western terminal stop is one stop away.
The third track is linked to Javel workshop.

Vandalism is taken into account in the conception of trains.
