Llandecwyn railway station serves the rural area (parish) of Llandecwyn on the estuary of the Afon Dwyryd in Gwynedd, Wales. The station is an unstaffed halt on the Cambrian Coast Railway with passenger services to Pwllheli, Barmouth, Machynlleth and Shrewsbury. The extremely short platform allows access to only one door of any trains which do call. Most trains call only on request.
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featured only two northbound and three southbound trains Mondays to Saturdays, with a note that the service may be withdrawn before 1 June 1996. The station was retained and service levels have since increased.
