The original carriages were built in the 1880s and started life as Third Class carriages of Midland Railway which changed to London Midland just before the carriages were sold. They were decommissioned from the Tewkesbury Line in 1926 and were carefully transported to the current position that they occupy today.

This type of property proved to be popular throughout the 1920 s onwards and many were built during this time, Tracks End is the last surviving example of this unique style of property, in this area.
