3716 was completed at Swindon in January 1937 and was sent new to Newport Ebbw Junction shed. Remaining a South Wales engine recorded allocations were Aberbeeg from November 1938, Severn Tunnel Junction from May 1944, Cardiff Canton from April 1945, Aberbeeg again from November 1948, Aberdare from April 1956 and Radyr (Cardiff) from December 1962. The engine returned to Aberdare in March 1963, serving until the end of the year, being one of a batch of 57xx engines withdrawn in December 1963.

The 8750 class can be distinguished from the 5700 class by the totally enclosed larger cab. Whistle shields and bunker steps with handrails were added from 1936. A new water feed was introduced in 1942 with the clack valves being fitted inside a case on top of the boiler in front of the dome, which became standard for builds after 1944. Between 1956 and 1963, thirteen 5700 locomotives were sold to the London Transport being painted in the attractive lined red livery. The NCB bought five 5700 locomotives between 1959 and 1965, with number 7754 still working in 1975.
