By August 1924 there was a minor extension in the service between Beddgelert and Portmadoc. This timetable saw the service at its most intensive, with 5 daily through trains in each direction, plus 2 additional trains between Portmadoc and Beddgelert. This level of intensity was never to be repeated :

|| ||a.m.||.||p.m.||.||.||.||Thur & Sat only|| ||Dinas Junction||8.10||9.50||12.00||---||3.05||5.40||---|| ||Beddgelert||9.30||12.15||1.17||3.15||4.58||7.29||8.30|| ||Portmadoc||10.12||12.58||2.05||3.57||5.39||8.11||9.12||

|| ||a.m.||p.m.|| ||Portmadoc||9.10||3.45|| ||Dinas Junction||11.40||6.12||

In places the timetable proved to be slightly different by several minutes from the one earlier published as scheduled to be operating from this date :

|| ||p.m.||not Sat.||Sat.||p.m.|| ||Dinas Junction||---||12.00||12.00||---|| ||South Snowdon||12.02||12.56||12.56||4.07|| ||Beddgelert||12.28||2.01||1.52||4.34|| ||Portmadoc||1.10||2.47||2.38||5.19||

The 2.50 p.m. train from Portmadoc ran 10 minutes later on Saturdays.

The 12.00 departure from Dinas carried a fully licensed buffet car as far as Beddgelert, this returning on the 3.05.



There was a slight change to the service in August 1928 whereby the 12.00 from Dinas spent a few minutes longer at Beddgelert, arriving at Portmadoc at 2.51, and a couple of other departures from Portmadoc were later by a few minutes.



From September 2nd, 1928, only the two afternoon daily through trains were retained :

|| ||p.m.|| ||Portmadoc||3.00|| ||Dinas Junction||5.11||



In October 1928 this was reduced further to one train from Dinas to Beddgelert, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays only :

|| ||p.m.|| ||Dinas Junction||12.30|| ||Beddgelert||1.50||

1930[edit]

With the railway in serious decline, the summer timetable from 7th July to 20th September 1930 showed only one daily train in each direction.
