AAL10 was built in 1930 for use on express and boat trains between Hobart and Launceston. With the introduction of newer carriages and railmotors during the 1950s, the operation of older carriages on secondary and suburban services became more common. AAL10 remained in service until withdrawn in 1977, following the cessation of all passenger services in Tasmania.
Extensive restoration work was started soon after the carriage arrived at the museum site in 1979, and recently further work has been carried out to allow operation on mainline trains.
