A bit of a Wrexham Central scenario I think here! At Barry Island, weekday off-peak, its services are scheduled to arrive into it at xx25 and xx55, leaving at these times also. The xx25 inward is given 7 minutes from Barry, but only 5 back, so is it correct to assume that the xx25 arrival and departure are indeed the same unit, using the 2 min 'slack' to turn around, or does each set have a 30 minute turnaround? (I can't actually see how that is possible with the branch's layout.)

Cheers

WTT times show xx:23 and xx:53 arrivals and xx:26 and xx:56 departures. As you say, it's impossible to have more than one unit on the branch at once.

A similar thing applies to Penarth. According to the public timetable trains only have a one-minute turnaround, although in reality it's more like three or four minutes. The inbound train has five minutes to get from Dingle Road to Penarth, but the outbound train only has two minutes to get back to Dingle Road. Although that said, there is quite a steep hill at Dingle Road which Penarth-bound trains have to climb, but I wouldn't imagine it would make that much difference.
