After the Post Office decided that Falmouth was to be the base for its mail boats - known as the Packets - in 1688, Falmouth grew to become a major docks facility.
In 1858 the Falmouth Docks Company was formed, with the railway following a few years later.
Despite Beeching's best efforts, the railway still operates (albeit as a lowly branch line) while the docks continue to provide much-needed employment in the area.
