Inspiration came from The Poly's archive of historic photographs, many of which were on display at their summer Falmouth On Track Exhibition. As part of his prize, Adam and his classmates were given a free trip to Truro to visit the Royal Cornwall Museum, courtesy of First Great Western.
Adam's poster will appear at stations over the coming weeks. The judges included the Mayor of Penryn Beverley Hulme, who said: "This was a wonderful opportunity for the children to learn about their heritage and demonstrate their artistic skills.
"We were very impressed by the standard of entries and had some tough decisions to make."
As well as First Great Western, the competition was supported by local companies Fal River Cornwall, The Big Red Bus Company and The Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society.
It was just one of many events and activities organised to celebrate the anniversary in August and was co-ordinated by the Devon & Cornwall Rail Partnership.
