The first Class 68 to venture west of Bridgewater was on 26/27 May 2016, when DRS operated a light loco route training run from Crewe to Penzance via an overnight stop at Exeter. The loco used was No. 67017 Hornet, which became the first of the class to traverse the Sea Wall on 27 May 2016 working 0Z68, 10.22 Exeter to Penzance and 0Z69, 14.27 Penzance to Exeter. The return working, running one hour early, is seen passing below the footbridge at the old Warren Halt station site, Dawlish Warren.
