Built as JDX they were recoded to JDF in 1977 as their traffic did not require being bogie exchanged.

Dolomite is used in glass making and the traffic was from South Australia (Tantanoola) to Dandenong.

The JDF/X and JSF/X classes were structually identical.
When Dolomite traffic ended the class found their way into quarry products service after having their roof removed.
