The fairy tale of Tramway is that it was set up in 1905 under the visionary of
Maharaja of Cochin Sri. Rama Varma to transport Cochin teak from Parambikulam
to Chalakkudy and then to export it to the rest of the World from Cochin Harbour.
The money from this tramway was used to equip Cochin into a modern port,
