Twelve of the CF Class units entered service with CFCL Australia (now Rail First Asset Management) from 2011 to 2013. They were built using the C44aci production model, which is in service with various railway operators throughout Australia. The CF Class are now in service in different areas, with four of the units owned by Rail First Asset Management being leased to Mineral Resources Limited Western Australia. CF4401 and CF4409 were sold to Aurizon in 2016.
