Tony Nicholson, press officer at Woody Bay station in Lynton, met with Mr Portillo when he visited.
Mr Nicholson said: "He came down in May on one of the only sunny days we had that month which was good.
"He was lovely. He was very unpompous and unaffected. There were various holidaymakers around who were charmed.
"He interviewed the driver of the engine and the manager. It is great for North Devon and all good publicity."
The Lynton to Barnstaple line was clsoed in 1935 but partly re-opened between Woody Bay station and Killington Lane in 2004.
