Deganwy railway station serves the small town of Deganwy, Wales, and is located on the branch line from Llandudno Junction (on the North Wales Coast Line from Crewe to Holyhead) to Llandudno.

History[edit]

The station was built by the London and North Western Railway in 1868 together with adjacent wharfs on the Conwy Estuary to which it was planned to bring dressed slate from Blaenau Ffestiniog for export by sea. These wharfs have been redeveloped in the 21st century for housing and marina facilities. The station retains its signal box and semaphore signalling.

Facilities[edit]

The station buildings have been demolished and replaced by small shelters but arriving passengers must still cross the line by the original footbridge.

Services[edit]

There are hourly through services on weekdays to Manchester Piccadilly via Colwyn Bay, Abergele, Rhyl, Prestatyn, Flint, Shotton, Chester and Warrington and also trains via the Conwy Valley Line to Blaenau Ffestiniog. Trains call only on request.
