However, in that year usually only the first out in the morning and last back at night used Porthmadog, the rest started and finished at Pont Croesor. From 2012 all trains run through.

Note that throughout this wiki the names Portmadoc and Porthmadog have been variously used; the first being the older name whilst the second is the more modern and, currently, official title. In older documentation there have been other spellings, including Portmadock, and Port Madoc
