Class 73

Nº73003 has been preserved and restored as NºE6003 in its original green livery (though with its definitely not original high intensity headlight). It is seen here working on the Mid Hants Railway in 1993. Nº73003 was in 1993 named Sir Herbert Walker after the esteemed first General Manager of the Southern Railway.
