The timetable for the T3 has not been released yet by either Cygnor Gwynedd or Traws Cymru. Lloyd's are operating to the interim timetable which albeit with a couple of changes to suit depot returns is basically that as operated by GHA. Lloyd's currently operate 3 vehicles from their Dolgellau depot and out station another 2 at Pat's Coaches, Wrexham, this could well be changed to base all 5 vehicles at Dolgellau. We won't know until the new timetable is published which will be pretty soon. Two of the loaned Enviro E200 hired in saloons remain until the Metro City's arrive.

The timetable in the ITT was identical to the current timetable

But does it still show July 2016, to my knowledge there has not been a new draft since then and when I spoke to Gwynedd they said they were in talks with Trawscymru early February to introduce a new timetable,

The 6pm bus turned in to Swansea at 5:52pm on time. It was rammed with people getting off.

I got on and there were 4 people on there.

Compared to a coach severe lack of seating! It will be bad I fear near summer time!

thanks for that... as for it being bad come summer... if those are typical loadings then it won't last that long... it's only a 6 month trial ending in May...

The T1C leaves Cardiff at 16.40, in theory 5 minutes behind the busy 16.35 X10 to Swansea. However the X10 rarely runs on time during peak periods and I suspect your T1C had most or all of the intending X10 passengers.
