Llandecwyn railway station serves the rural area around Llandecwyn on the estuary of the Afon Dwyryd in Gwynedd, Wales.

History[edit]

British Rail requested the permission of the Secretary of State for Transport to close Llandecwyn and three other Cambrian Coast stations during the mid-1990s. Their winter 1995/96 timetable featured only two northbound and three southbound trains Mondays to Saturdays, with a note that the service may be withdrawn before 1 June 1996.[1] The station was retained and service levels have since increased.

The station was completely reconstructed during summer 2014, as part of the scheme of works to replace nearby Pont Briwet and now consists of a small glass shelter and a short concrete platform capable of accommodating two carriages. [2]

Services[edit]

The station is an unstaffed halt on the Cambrian Coast Railway with passenger services to Pwllheli, Barmouth, Machynlleth and Shrewsbury. Most trains call only on request.
