Description
Betws-y-coed Railway Station (Bettws-y-coed until 1953), dates from 1868 when it was the terminus of the London and North Western Railway line from Llandudno Junction, until the route was extended to Blaenau Ffestiniog eleven years later. In 1996, the station building was recorded as being in fairly good condition; it lies on the operational Conwy Valley Line (nprn 415673).
