Rhydyronen railway station (grid reference SH614021) is a request stop on the Talyllyn Railway near Tywyn, Gwynedd in mid-Wales. It is 2 miles, 12 chains (3.46 km) from Tywyn Wharf, and was the first intermediate station to open, in 1867, a year after the opening of the line. A siding was once provided here, to serve a quarry and manganese mine, and during the Victorian era, a nearby chalybeate spring was promoted for tourists. Rhydyronen is Welsh for Ash Ford.
