The Collett 5700 class was introduced in 1929, a overhaul and update of the GWR's previous pannier tank designs, the 1854 & 2721 classes from 1890-1900 that had proven highly successful but had been built in 1901 and becoming life expired. The 8750 class followed in 1933 with further design refinements, notably the modern looking curved cab roof. Needing new engines delivered quickly 57xx panniers were built at Swindon works and by North British Loco Co, Bagnalls, Kerr, Stuart, Yorkshire Engine Co and Armstrong Whitworth. By 1950 863 locomotives had been constructed, forming one of the largest locomotive classes in Britain. With so many builders and GWR standardisation allowing parts (eg tanks) to be switched between engines, many variations appeared over the years.
 
The GWR placed the new 57xx class in power class C, equating to BR classification 3 with a blue route restriction, later reduced to yellow, giving the engines almost universal route clearance. Having been developed from older engines the 57xx class was expected to undertake all kinds of local passenger and goods duties on main and branch lines in addition to their shunting role, so, except for the 'shunting only' 67xx engines all were equipped with vacuum train brakes and steam heating connections. The engines were to be found all over the GWR/BR Western Region and in BR days several were sent to the Southern region and even the Midland/S&D shed at Bath to replace older engines
