Sun Bank Halt in Wrexham County Borough, Wales, was a minor station on the Ruabon to Barmouth line. It opened as Garth & Sun Bank Halt but was renamed on 1 July 1906. The line was double track and there was never a signal box nor freight facilities here.
On 7 September 1945, the bank of the Shropshire Union Canal failed, causing the trackbed to be washed away near the halt. A mail and freight train was derailed, killing one person and injuring two people. A fire broke out, destroying all but the brake van of the train's consist.
