Abergynolwyn railway station
Abergynolwyn railway station
The platform and main building, seen from a train heading for Tywyn Wharf. The building contains a cafe; trains normally pause here for around 25 minutes on their way back to Tywyn so passenger can make use of the facilities here, the exception being the last train, which pauses on its way up. Abergynolwyn was the passenger terminus of the line until the extension to Nant Gwernol (which had been freight only) was opened well into the preservation era, in 1976. The station is up the hillside about half a mile from Abergynolwyn village, so was probably not especially attractive to use for the residents. In the days before motor transport, supplies were delivered to the village via a rope worked incline down the hillside from the railway.
