Tal-y-Cafn railway station is located at Tal-y-Cafn, Wales, on the Conwy Valley Line from Llandudno Junction to Blaenau Ffestiniog. This station is a request stop for northbound trains but not, according to timetables, for southbound trains (the presence of the manually operated level crossing seen in the accompanying photograph may account for this).
Prior to nationalisation the station was a train crossing station and was known as Tal-y-Cafn and Eglwysbach and publicised as the station for Bodnant Garden, which is in the parish of Eglwysbach and a lengthy up-hill walk.
The station was renamed from Tal-y-Cafn & Eglwysbach to Tal-y-Cafn on 6 May 1974, although a name board on the disused platform still refers to Eglwysbach.
The station buildings, mostly in private occupation are well maintained. The station is manned owing to the need for crossing gates on the bridge road.
Six trains call in each direction Mon-Sat, with three departures each way on Sundays from the beginning of the summer timetable in May until early September.
