Class 47 No. 47832 comes round the curve from Watchet to Kentsford Farm Crossing on the West Somerset Railway with the Statesman Rail 'Exmoor Coast Statesman' day tour from Crewe to Minehead. The train was worked top-and-tail, with Class 47 No. 47826 on the back. Routed via Shrewsbury and the North and West line, closure of the Severn Tunnel meant that the train was diverted through Chepstow and Gloucester to reach Bristol.
