09.10 - Sherpa journey     b - Change at Beddgelert    
# - a weekday non-Sherpa connecting "6B" journey operates from Llyn Ogwen (for Tryfan) at 1820 along the Ogwen Valley (change to the "S2" Sherpa at Capel Curig)    
% - whilst in theory is is possible to catch the earlier "88 at Llanberis (depart 1922) - as it is less than 5 minutes, it is NOT recognised as a connection by the TravelineCymru Journey Planner    
it may also be just possible to catch the earlier "5C" at Bangor (depart 1945) - but as it is less than 5 minutes, it is NOT recognised as a connection by the TravelineCymru Journey Planner    
  latest times should always be confirmed from the individual timetables on the official Gwynedd CC or Conwy CC websites  and any subsequent amendments thereto
