Pont-y-Pant railway station is a single platform passenger station in the Lledr Valley, Wales, on the Conwy Valley Line from Llandudno Junction to Blaenau Ffestiniog, which is operated by Arriva Trains Wales. The station house is well maintained and used as a private dwelling.

The station, which is operated as an unstaffed halt and as a request stop, is across the River Lledr from the A470 main road and the bridge is a quarter of a mile to the north of the station.

There is no local village but the station serves a number of nearby isolated properties, and is also useful to walkers, owing to its proximity to a surviving section of the Sarn Helen Roman road, and to the nearby village of Dolwyddelan.

Services[edit]

Five southbound and six northbound trains call on request Mon-Sat (approximately every three hours), with three trains each way on Sundays between May and early September.
