On 8th March 2020, the Branch Line Society ran 'The Devon Crompton' charter bringing a pair of Class 33s back onto the infamous Honiton Bank, the class once familiar regular traction on this Waterloo to Exeter route. The relatively recent demolition of the platform to platform footbridge at Seaton Junction provides a clear view of the tour running through the station area. Here, Swanage based Class 33/0 No. D6515 'Lt.Jenny Lewis RN' and West Coast Class 33/2 No. 33207 'Jim Martin' 'top and tail' the 09:38 London Victoria to Coleford leg of the tour. The train later returned to the capital via Taunton and Bristol.
