WCRC 47804 heads south at Leyland with the 'Edinburgh Christmas Statesman' railtour on 5 December 2015. The tour had started in Holyhead but never reached Edinburgh. The WCML was closed in Cumbria as a result of severe flooding and high winds caused by Storm Desmond. The tour had been halted at Oxenholme from where it is seen returning. Due to further weather related problems in Anglesey the train could not get back to Holyhead and was terminated at Bangor.
