Dolwyddelan railway station is a passenger station in the Lledr Valley, Wales, on the Conwy Valley Line from Llandudno Junction to Blaenau Ffestiniog, which is operated by Transport for Wales. It is located at Pentre-Bont across the river a few hundred yards from the centre of Dolwyddelan. The station is unmanned.

The platform used to be an island platform as there was a passing loop on the west side. There used to be a substantial station building on the platform and a footbridge up to the road bridge. Both have now been removed and only remaining building is a standard waiting shelter. It is however fitted with a CIS display to offer train running details (these can also be obtained by phone and timetable posters).[1] Step-free access is provided from the car park to the platform.[2]

Services[edit]

Five southbound and six northbound trains call on request Mon-Sat (approximately every three hours), with three trains each way on Sundays between May and early September.[3] Currently however (March 2019), services are suspended from here due to major flood damage to the track further north (near Llanrwst) caused by Storm Gareth. The line is likely to remain closed for several months whilst repairs are carried out.[4]
