IMPORTANT
    Cambrian Coast Railway Line also Covid
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    The Cambrian Coast Railwat Line has re-opened following major work on Barmouth viaduct
    Hovever as a result of shortage of train crews due to Covis isolation,  some Cambrian Coast Line train journeys are being covered by a "Rail Replacement Bus" running to similar but not identical times with some jouney times being extended - resulting in the severence of some connections with Sherpa (and other) journeys
    YOU ARE STRONGLY ADVISED TO CHECK THE LATEST POSITION WITH "TRANSPORT FOR WALES" BEFORE SETTING OUT
  Gwynfor have made changes to the Sherpa timetables for Winter 2021-2022 commencing 1st November

    Basically the "S2" reverted to a 'one bus' operation similar to last winter,  BUT some journeys run slightly EARLIER than during the summer.  However the "S4" and "S97" services have been re-cast (still making limited connections at Pen-y-Pass),  whilst the "S1" and "S6" services have again been "suspended" for the winter..........
.........see below for the latest known information also updated other pages on this website

    In view of the late official information - at one time Operators were legally required to give at least 56 days notice of any change - ANY PAGE ON THIS WEBSITE DATED BEFORE 29th OCTOBER SHOUD BE REGARDED AS "STILL TO BE FULLY UPDATED"
