Barmouth station was a railroad station in Lower Merion, Pennsylvania. Located on East Levering Mill Road, the station was a stop on the Pennsylvania Railroad's Schuylkill Branch, and later became a part of SEPTA's Ivy Ridge Line (then called R6 Ivy Ridge).
The station, and all of those north of Cynwyd station, was closed in May 1986 when the integrity of the Pencoyd Viaduct crossing the Schuylkill River and Schuylkill Expressway was questioned. In 2009, SEPTA leased the line to Lower Merion Township, who dismantled the tracks for the Cynwyd Heritage Trail. The last remnants of the station, the platforms and a stone shelter, were demolished in 2011 to make room for the trail parking lot.
