On this day, Colonel Stephens issued new instructions for the railway, which included:
"44. No engine or train must cross the Great Western Railway at Portmadoc without permission from the signalman, who will exhibit a green flag by day, and green light at night. All up trains must stop dead near the safety points, and remain there until signalled to proceed. When trains require to cross, the driver must call the attention of the signalman, by engine giving two long and one short whistles for the down trains and one long and two short, for the up trains."
