Notes :
(1) Tour was originally advertised to 'Portmadoc for return trip to Dduallt' however the ticket suggests
Minffordd was the change station so confirmation is required if the DMU went on to Portmadoc or not. Pre tour advertising also stated that 'a connection or coach from Bristol' would be available, if demand were sufficient.
