Deganwy railway station serves the small town of Deganwy, Wales, and is located on the branch line from Llandudno Junction (on the North Wales Coast Line from Crewe to Holyhead) to Llandudno.

History[edit]

The station was built by the London and North Western Railway in 1866 together with adjacent wharfs on the Conwy Estuary to which it was planned to bring dressed slate from Blaenau Ffestiniog for export by sea. These wharfs have been redeveloped in the 21st century for housing and marina facilities. The station retains its signal box and semaphore signalling.

Facilities[edit]

The station buildings have been demolished and replaced by small shelters but arriving passengers must still cross the line by the original footbridge. No ticketing facilities are provided, so passenger must buy tickets on the train or prior to travel. Train running information is offered via timetable posters and telephone. Step-free access to both platforms is available, though this requires the use of the station level crossing for Llandudno-bound passengers.[1]

Services[edit]

There are hourly through services on weekdays to Manchester Piccadilly via Colwyn Bay, Abergele, Rhyl, Prestatyn, Flint, Shotton, Chester and Warrington

There are four trains per day running along the Conwy Valley Line calling at stations such as Llanrwst, Betws-y-coed as well as Blaenau Ffestiniog

Arriva Trains Wales also provide a regular shuttle between Llandudno, Deganwy and Llandudno Junction. Llandudno Junction serves as an interchange with good connections for services heading towards Bangor & Holyhead as well as services to Birmingham New Street, London and South Wales.

Sunday trains only operate during the summer months (May timetable change until mid-September) - these operate only as a shuttle between Llandudno & Llandudno Junction (except for two return trips over the Conwy Valley line) from 10.00am until the early evening.[2]

Trains at Deganwy stop at request only.
