As far as I know it's 3 diagrams on Cardiff > Holyhead from May including the diagram previously operated by Mark 3 stock. They are having 7 Class 67s eventually so 3 sets makes no sense, I am convinced they'll be more come December. Unless things have changed because of the ongoing situation but it was suggested in 2019 that they'd be 5 sets.

Can you point me to any actual announcement of 7 sets?

There is no way three sets can cover three diagrams reliably - the intention was for two sets to work three single trips daily including the original round trip.

It was announced as 5 sets with 7 Class 67s in 2019.
