On what is sometimes a typical British summer's day WCR Class 37/5 No. 37518 runs into Wareham Station Platform 1 in teeming rain as it arrives with the 13:10 service from Swanage on 2nd August 2017. The Swanage Railway's Class 33 'Crompton' No. D6515 'Lt Jenny Lewis RN' is on the rear of the train. This service was scheduled to arrive on Platform 2 at Wareham but a platform change was initiated due to the imminent passing of LNER Class A4 Pacific No. 60009 'Union of South Africa' working a 'Dorset Coast Express' charter.
