The next development was the AA19 which were built between 1927 and 1931 incorporating many RCH parts such as buffers and axleboxes but utilising the same body. The total constructed was 221 vans. Diagram AA 20 followed which was externally identical to the AA19 vans with a total of 354 being built between 1934 and 1943.
