I searched on the official timetable website and found multiple time tables for matterhorn glacier paradise.
No - remember that what you are looking at is a facsimile of a traditional paper timetable but sourced using modern tech. The two links are one in the same 'piece of paper' ie one page of the traditional printed timetable with two table numbers printed on it (2285 and 2286)
The third link is to table 2280 which is a different cable car route.
The lift system (mainly for the benefit of skiers) in Zermatt has been dramatically modernised over the last 15 years.
Table 2285 refers to the old 1960s cable car (with a single car for each direction) which as you can see is closed in winter (it's design being outmoded for skiers) but open in the summer (because the old design works OK for walkers)
Table 2280 is the route of the modern Matterhorn Express, a 'Gondelbahn' type lift with continuously moving cable onto which small gondolas hook in quick succession.
That's why you can access Klein Matterhorn on your date, using the Matterhorn Express as far as Trockener Steg
