Up stopping train near Llys Halt in 1951

Llys Halt in Gwynedd, Wales, was on the Ruabon to Barmouth line. There was no passing place or freight activity here.

There was a single platform on the south-east side, provided with and open-front shelter, and a single nameboard reading "Llys Halt". Approximately 55 yards (50 m) to the south-east was Llys Crossing, which was gated and manned; this was provided with a crossing keepers house. In addition to the main gates for road vehicles, there were swing wickets for pedestrians. The crossing was controlled from Llanuwchllyn. Today a garden hedgerow covers the site of the platform.
