On this day, there was an accident, at Penrhyn Crossing.

A late night breakdown train stopped for the crossing to be opened. Hugh Hughes, a foreman fitter, was amongst the passengers, thought it had arrived in the station, and so attempted to alight the train.

Unfortunately the train was standing waiting to cross, into the station. Hughes fell down the embankment. He later died from his injuries.
