On 24th October 2018, 'Hymek' No. D7018 arrives at Blue Anchor on the West Somerset Railway with a six-coach train of empty stock during a loaded test run from Bishops Lydeard to Minehead. This train had classmate No. D7017 at the back as a precaution, but the two double-headed the return working. 'Hymek' No. D7018 had been out of service following an engine failure in 1995 and since 2002 it has undergone an extensive overhaul at the Diesel and Electric Preservation Group Depot at Williton.
