The Victorian Railways built the AEC rail buses in around 1920-25, in all 19 were built at the Newport Workshops. They were a quite successful design, tthe last one being taken out of service in about 1956.

I was fortunate enough to have crawled around No.9 when it was on show for the Victorian Railways centenary in 1954.

None have survived into preservation, although one group is convinced there is one out there somewhere.
