V6 was withdrawn from service and sold in 1983. Like many of its classmates the motor was removed for reuse in a boat, but in this case the remains were not immediately scrapped and the loco, the last to be painted in the TGR red livery, lingered around Launceston workshops until the early 1990s when the body was scrapped. The underframe was eventually moved to the Don River Railway, and later to the West Coast Wilderness Railway. By November 2014 when this photo was taken, the remains had been stripped of almost all useable parts and were likely to be scrapped in the near future
