Since my last posting on the CRS website regarding last through trains, Falmouth branch, I have had the opportunity to read 'Rail Express Magazine' article Westerns to Falmouth. To answer John Balls question when the Falmouth to Paddington service restarted, my original date of 1976 is the same as their write up mentions, so 1976 is confirmed as being correct.

Many thanks Karl, for your time and trouble - much appreciated.
