Photographed at the east end of Edinburgh's Haymarket mpd, NER Raven class C9 class 4-4-2 no. 727 was rebuilt by Gresley's design team from a C7 and reclassified in 1931 to incorporate a booster apparatus which ultimately proved to be unsuccessful and that arrangement was decommissioned in 1937. 727 was withdrawn in January 1943.
