The JX / VPCX Cement Hopper - Prototype Information

The JX Cement hopper wagon was built between 1963 and 1982 at both Newport and Ballarat Workshops, with the class totaling 158 wagons.

The JX / VPCX wagons carried cement from Warun Ponds near Geelong to various points around Victoria.

A number of VPCXs were also gauge converted and used on Standard Gauge to carry cement to Canberra for construction of the new Parliament House.
