West Coast Railways Class 47 No.47826 leads the 'Exmoor Coast Statesman' through Crowcombe on the 30th June 2018. The premier dining charter is pictured passing the heritage diesel service (15:15 Bishops Lydeard - Minehead) waiting with Class 33 D6566 (No.33048). Unfortunately due to a points failure at Blue Anchor earlier in the day all services were running late. As the 1Z79 15:08 Minehead - Crewe needed to get back to the mainline it took priority over the WSRs own service trains. As a result the 15:15 heritage diesel servce to Minehead was cancelled at Crowcombe and returned to Bishops Lydeard after The Statesman Charter had passed.
