Llangelynin station was a single-platform halt on the Cambrian Line, which served the small village of Llangelynin in Gwynedd, Wales. It was opened in 1930 by the Great Western Railway and was known as Llangelynin Halt.

It was closed by British Rail in 1991;[1] all stations had to be lit at night on safety grounds and it was deemed not worth the upgrade.[2] The line is still open, but trains no longer call at the station.
