Drws-y-Nant railway station (Pron: Droos-a-Nant) in Gwynedd, Wales, was formerly a station on the Ruabon to Barmouth line.

The station had two platforms with a passing loop, plus a small goods yard with a dock for loading livestock. According to the Official Handbook of Stations the following classes of traffic were being handled at this station in 1956: G, P, L & H and there was no crane.[2]

Part of the station survives today with two whole platforms, and a nearby crossing cottage. The station is visible from the road near the line.
