Borth railway station is a railway station on the Cambrian Line in mid-Wales, serving the village of Borth near Aberystwyth.

Facilities[edit]

The station, which originally had two platforms, is now an unmanned halt. The original station building still remains and is in private / commercial use apart from one room which provides a waiting room for passengers. The station has been adopted under the Arriva Trains Wales Station Adoption Scheme and has won a number of community awards.

Work co-ordinated by Borth Station Volunteers started in January 2011 to convert an unused part of the waiting room, and the long-closed booking office into a museum and was completed in July 2011.[1] The museum now houses various collections, including Village History, Railway & Industrial Heritage, Natural History and Environmental displays. The museum and the station play a key role in Episode 4 of Y Gwyll (Hinterland in English) transmitted on S4C in 2013 and BBC1 Wales in January 2014.
