BR Class 47 No. 47593 'Galway Princess' rolls towards an unscheduled stop at Wareham on 3rd June 2023 while operating the 'Dorset Coast Statesman' with BR Class 47 No. 47805 ' Roger Hosking M.A.1925-2013' on the rear. Signalling issues had caused pilotman working to be introduced on the single line section after Moreton, and although only 14 minutes late leaving Wareham a further 60 minutes were lost by arrival in Weymouth. The length of the train also meant the contentious Wareham foot crossing was blocked for 12 minutes as well.
