Looking at the twitter it seems there was a final twist in that today more people stayed in Cardiff after the match rather than going straight to the station, so the queues were light initially and built up later after the services were thinning out again.

There were 3 trains formed 66+67 as seen.   The Stock would have been a mixture.
