Knucklas railway station serves the village of Knucklas, Powys, Wales, 34 34 miles (55.9 km) south west of Shrewsbury.

This railway station is located on a steep hill above the village. It is a request stop, so intending passengers have to signal to the driver that they wish to board the train, while those wishing to alight from the train must convey their wish to the train staff. After departing from the station in the westerly direction, trains pass over the Knucklas viaduct.[1]

All trains serving the station are operated by Arriva Trains Wales.

Services[edit]

There are four trains a day in each direction (Shrewsbury northbound and Swansea southbound) from Monday to Saturday, and two services on Sundays.
