Rhosneigr railway station serves the village of Rhosneigr on the isle of Anglesey, off the coast of north Wales. The unstaffed station is managed by Arriva Trains Wales, who also operate all trains that serve it.

History[edit]

The station was opened in May 1907,[1] much later than the other Anglesey stations on the North Wales Coast Line. It was closed between 1 January 1917 and 1 February 1919[1] as an economy measure during World War I.[citation needed] Unlike the other stations it has neither sidings or a goods yard. The station buildings were originally made of wood but in 1953 they were replaced by concrete structures.[citation needed] Of these, the structure on platform one remains whilst the one on platform two has been replaced by a metal and plastic bus stop-style shelter. The station master's house still stands but is a private dwelling.[2]

Services[edit]

There is a roughly two-hourly weekday service in each direction from the station, plus a limited Sunday service. Most eastbound trains run to Wrexham General, Shrewsbury and Birmingham International, although a few services run to either Crewe or Cardiff.[3] Trains stop on request.
