Llanbrynmair railway station was a railway station on the Newtown and Machynlleth Railway (N&MR) in Mid-Wales, serving the village of Llanbrynmair.

After leaving Newtown (Powys), the N&MR crossed the River Severn and passed the Cambrian Mountains through Talerddig cutting, junctioning with the Mawddwy Railway at Cemmes Road. It then proceeded to Machynlleth.

Llanbrynmair shut under the Beeching Axe in 1965, although the station building itself remains today as a private house.

After a fatality in October 1999, the adjacent level crossing was closed and the road was diverted.
