The five DC Class units originally entered service as part of the New South Wales 422 Class. Along with another nine members of the 422 Class, they were refurbished by Downer EDI at Port Augusta in South Australia and then reclassified as the 22 Class when they re-entered service from 2001. Five of 22 Class were again reclassified as the DC Class.
