Llanaber railway station serves the village of Llanaber near Barmouth in Gwynedd, Wales. The station is an unstaffed halt on the Cambrian Coast Railway with passenger services to Harlech, Porthmadog, Pwllheli, Barmouth, Machynlleth and Shrewsbury. Most trains call only on request.

The station platform is located on a narrow ledge below the village of Llanaber and immediately above a rocky beach.

January 2014 Storms[edit]

Wave damage caused 3 January 2014, 100m north of the station

On 3 January 2014 wave action washed away 300 tonnes of track bed and deposited 800 tonnes of debris on the line.[1] The line was closed for five months whilst Network Rail engineers repaired the formation and rebuilt the sea wall, with traffic resuming as far as Harlech on 1 May. Through services to Pwllheli remained suspended until 1 September due to rebuilding work on the Pont Briwet viaduct.
