Apart from the locomotives built specifically for shunting, the fitting of vacuum brakes, steam heating, and ATC became standard for the class, and was added to earlier locomotives within a few years of building. As a result of the 1955 Modernisation Plan, the 5700 Class was withdrawn from BR service between 1956 and 1966. 3650 was withdrawn in 1963 and bought by Stephenson Clarke to work in a South Wales colliery. 7211 (7200 class), 1633 (1600 class), 3642 (5700 class), 1607 (1600 class) and 5722 (5700 class), There were numerous other classes of pannier tanks built by the GWR. , They worked permanent way trains and were never used on normal passenger services.

In 1971 No. , Just Like The Real Thing make an O gauge kit for the 5700 and 8750 classes. The 5700s were given the GWR route colour Blue[b] (based on axle load), and were in the GWR power group C (based on tractive effort). The table below gives the technical specifications of the 5700 class. The first was modified with condensing equipment and new cab as the prototype for the 9700 class. , Of the twelve 5700s that went to Barry Scrapyard, five were saved for preservation and one (No. No.

The locomotive weight increased to 50 long tons 15 cwt (113,700 lb or 51.6 t), and the axle load increased to 17 long tons 4 cwt (38,500 lb or 17.5 t).. , After nationalisation, some 5700s were painted in BR green with the words "BRITISH RAILWAYS" on the side of the pannier tanks,  but unlined black soon became the standard for tank locomotives, with the BR crest on the sides of the pannier tanks. The modified chimney was sometimes referred to as a 'Busby' or a 'bird cage'.  All the later locomotives, totalling 563, were built at Swindon, and the numbers built only dropped in the last few years with the introduction of the 9400 class in 1947. and deep participation in the design work, but one suspects that They were used for local, suburban and branch line passenger and goods traffic, for shunting duties, and as banker engines on inclines.
A number of 6700s were also allocated to Swindon, with 6733–41 spending a long time there. For locomotives build by outside contractors, the ATC equipment was added on arrival at Swindon. Main line running included trips between depots, to Acton Works and runs out to Croxley Tip, near Watford. Aptly described as the GWR equivalent of the LB&SCR "Terrier" Class of William Stroudley, their wide availability and lively performance gave them long lives, and eventually they were replaced from 1949 by what were in essence very similar locomotives, the short-lived 1600 Class of Frederick Hawksworth, which in the headlong abandonment of steam outlived them by a mere seven years or so.

No.  Locomotives fitted with pannier tanks have a lower centre of gravity than those with saddle tanks (enabling higher speeds on curves),  and access for maintenance is easier than for those fitted with side tanks. Built with vacuum brakes and steam heating apparatus (as were all later locomotives).
