Gelerts Farm Halt railway station on the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway is a railway station in Wales that was opened in 1988. It is a simple platform alongside the main shed at Gelert's Farm Works.

All trains in one direction stop at the halt for the passengers to visit the museum. The halt is a request stop for trains in the other direction. Until the end of 2005 trains stopped in the Pen-y-Mount (up) direction. From the 2006 season, trains stop in the Porthmadog (down) direction. The platform was rebuilt and extended in 2006. In early 2007, the platform was extended a further 40 ft (12 m) in the northerly direction and a ramp constructed to enter the North Yard. A water supply has been installed at the southern end of the platform for watering locomotives.
