Gaerwen railway station was situated on the North Wales Coast Line, serving as the junction for the Anglesey Central Railway line to Amlwch. The station closed to passengers in 1966,[1] but the adjoining freight yard remained open for coal and fertiliser traffic[2] before it also closed in 1984.

There were two signal boxes close to the station, one of which remains in use.[1]
