Bodorgan railway station serves the hamlet of Bodorgan and the village of Bethel on the Isle of Anglesey, Wales. The stop is an unmanned halt, and serves as a request stop for Chester and Holyhead-bound local trains along the North Wales coast.
The station, which was originally to be called Trefdraeth, was opened in October 1849 and had a small signal box, a small goods yard and a water tower. The goods yard closed in December 1964 but the stationmaster's house remains (now in private use). There are stone-built shelters on both platforms.
The station has the same range of amenities as others on this part of the line (CIS screens, timetable poster boards and a payphone). No ticketing facilities are available however, so these must be purchased in advance or on the train. Level access is available to both platforms, though platform 2 is only reachable by a barrow crossing and so care is advised when using it.
There is a two-hourly weekday service in each direction from the station. Most eastbound trains run to Wrexham General, Shrewsbury and Birmingham International, although a small number run to either Crewe or Cardiff.
The Sunday service is irregular (six westbound, seven eastbound) and runs mainly to/from Crewe, with one service to Wrexham and Cardiff.
