The station, which originally had two platforms, is now an unmanned halt.
The original station building still remains and is in private / commercial use apart from one room, which provides a waiting room for passengers. The station has been adopted under the Arriva Trains Wales Station Adoption Scheme and has won a number of community awards.
Volunteers started in January 2011 to convert an unused part of the waiting room and the long-closed booking office into a museum; this was completed in July 2011. The museum now houses various collections, including Village History, Railway & Industrial Heritage, Natural History and Environmental displays.
In popular culture
Trains call at least every two hours in each direction (Mon-Sat), rising to hourly at certain times of day (morning & afternoon peak periods and into the evening). They run to Aberystwyth westbound and either Machynlleth, Shrewsbury or Birmingham International eastbound. A similar frequency operates on Sundays, but starting later in the day.
