Llanwrtyd railway station serves the town of Llanwrtyd Wells, Powys, Wales. The station is on the Heart of Wales Line 53½ miles (86 km) north east of Swansea. The railway station is located at street level at Station Road near the town centre. Opened by the LNWR on 6 May 1867[1] (as part of the company's Central Wales Extension Railway project), it is the location of one of the route's five remaining passing loops. The loop points and associated indicators have recently been replaced as part of a £5 million project by Network Rail to renew all five loops on the line.

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

Services[edit]

There are four trains a day in each direction southbound to Swansea and northbound to Shrewsbury from Monday to Saturday, and two services on Sundays. It is the crossover point where services running north to south meet the corresponding service running south to north, whereupon a crew swap between northern based traincrew and south Welsh based traincrew occurs.
