Llanerchymedd railway station was situated on the Anglesey Central Railway line from Gaerwen to Amlwch. There was a single platform with a small station building located on the Up (east) side of the track. Three sidings and two small goods sheds made a small goods yard, which was up on the Up side.[3]

All stations on the Anglesey Central line closed to passengers in 1964 (the sidings and all buildings but the station building itself were removed) as part of the Beeching Axe although freight works continued until 1993. The station building is owned by Isle of Anglesey County Council and there are potential plans to develop it as a railway museum.[4] and also to one day re-open possibly a part of the branch as a heritage railway and someday give plenty of rides.
