Raven, seen here in Plymouth, now part of the GWR. Earlier, in January 1877 she had been being sold to the Torbay & Brixham Railway, returning to the GWR on January 1883 as No. 2175. In August 1892, after the death of the broad gauge, she was convered to standard gauge and fitted with a new boiler and renumbered 1329. Eventually being sold to the Wantage Tramway in March 1910, she was cut up in the 1930s after a long period out of use.
