Nant Gwernol station

Nant Gwernol railway station (grid reference SH680065) is the eastern terminus of the Talyllyn Railway near Abergynolwyn, Gwynedd in mid-Wales. It is 7 miles, 28 chains (11.83 km) from Tywyn Wharf.

Nant Gwernol (English: Alder Stream) station was opened in 1976, at the foot of the former incline to Bryn Eglwys slate quarry - previously the upper part of the line had not been used for passenger services. Trains only wait at the station long enough for the locomotive to run round, as there are no facilities at that point. Instead, most trains pause at Abergynolwyn station on the return journey to allow passengers time for refreshments. There is no road access to the station, though several footpaths lead off up the incline or towards Abergynolwyn.
