FX flour wagons
|The FX's main traffic was from Albury, N.S.W. to Westall and Williamstown Pier. Their design shares many similarities with JX cement hoppers, the main difference being that the FX's had 4 hoppers versus 3 hoppers on the JX.
Although capable of bogie exchange I do not know of any occasion that they ran on SG.
