As the last locomotive constructed at Eastleigh Works (albeit at the long closed carriage works section, 1/2 mile to the north of the remaining part of the site) 73006 was invited to attend the May 2009 Eastleigh 100 event. By late 2008, the electric blue paintwork with white solebar stripe was looking pretty weather-beaten and so a fully deserved repaint was undertaken at the Bewdley workshops of the S.V.R., in the months leading up the works openday.

Shown below is how 006 was displayed at the Eastleigh 100 event, positioned alongside SWT-liveried 73109.
