1. A wayside station of 1868, replacing the original Conway and Llanrwst Railway terminus station of 1863, when the line was extended to Bettws-y-coed in 1867 (nprn 41466). The station, renamed North Llanrwst from 1989, lies on the Conwy Valley Line (nprn 415673), formerly the Bettws y Coed Branch of the London and North Railway. This section of railway served a number of the slate quarries in the Nantconwy area.
