Dolau railway station is an unstaffed railway station with one platform serving the small village of Dolau in Powys, mid Wales. It is located on the Heart of Wales Line and is served by four trains each direction Monday-Saturday (plus a fifth northbound service on weekdays only) and two trains each direction on Sundays. Passenger services are operated by Arriva Trains Wales. It is a request stop for southbound trains only - those heading towards Shrewsbury have to stop here so that the train crew can activate the controls for the adjacent half barrier level crossing.
The station is tended to by the Dolau Station Action Group, who has decorated the platform with plants, flowers, a wooden waiting shelter and clock. The shelter houses a guestbook as well as the awards the station has received. Queen Elizabeth II unveiled a plaque at the station in 2002 commemorating her visit during the Golden Jubilee visit to Wales. Like most other stations on the route, it has been fitted with a digital information screen and customer help point to provide train running details. It also has a bicycle rack and payphone.
Formerly known as Dolau Halt, the suffix was dropped in 1969.
