Thanks for your answers parcdesprinces and Minato Ku!!
After doing a little research i found that the yellow cars were First class for the ligne Nord-Sud (current line 12). As for the Sprague-thomson, the RATP as kept 3 trains and only one is working for heritage days and other special events. I imagine, the other 2 are in the RATP museum.

Thats cool. I also not that long ago found a very rare thumbnail photo of a sprague on the 14 alongside the MP89CA.


If they could at least bring on an MP73 alongside the Sprague, MP59 & MP89 on Line 4 after the transition between Lines 1 & 4 begin, that would be cool.

No, it isn't....I mean... I thought it wasn't an issue anymore...

BTW, I hadn't seen a train like that since at least the late 80s! !!


P.S. Anyway, I suspect it didn't stay like that for long !

BTW, about 80s...

Do you have "le ticket chic" ?? Do you have "le ticket choc" ??? 'cause if you don't...then I guess this is for you :

I didn't see too many graffitti trains while I was in Paris. But this train in the video was vandalized real bad on the outside. & it was one of the nice looking refurbished MF 67s too.

I agree, im sure it didn't stay that way for long. Its probably all cleaned up and looking good as new now.
