Date of (infamous?) letter from Septimus C. Tyrwhitt to the GWR which includes the para's

"I ... note that, for the time being, you agree to the existing signalling arrangements remaining and the provision of a new signal box being deferred subject to an independent telephone circuit being provided between Portmadoc East and Penrhyndeudraeth with connections, as stated.

I note also that you agree to cattle guards being used in lieu of gates at the crossing and that you will not press for heavy permanent way material being provided up to the boundary.

It is understood that the cost of the necessary alterations at Portmadoc Crossing and that of the staff will be borne by this Company. I take it that the cost of staff that will be debited to this Company is the wages of the signalmen now employed less the cost of the woman crossing keeper employed formerly."
