Penhelig railway station (also spelt Penhelyg) serves the eastern outskirts of the seaside resort of Aberdyfi in Gwynedd, Wales. Its situation is unusual, being located on a short length of sharply curved single track between two tunnels. The station is an unstaffed halt on the Cambrian Coast Railway with passenger services to Tywyn, Barmouth, Harlech, Porthmadog, Pwllheli, Machynlleth and Shrewsbury. Trains stop on request.

2018 Improvements[edit]

Between 1 January and 30 March, the station will be closed as Network Rail will replace the existing timber platform with an improved structure coated with glass reinforced plastic. This will reduce future maintenance work as well as improve access to the station. They will also improve the lighting on the platform and engineers will carry out improvements on the tunnels either side of the station. During the closure, Arriva Trains Wales will provide a taxi service to those wishing to use the station.[1]
