Llandeilo Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Llandeilo railway station (formerly "Landilo Junction for the Carmarthen Line") serves the small town of Llandeilo, West Wales. The station is 30¾ miles (50 km) north east of Swansea on the Heart of Wales Line. The station is located below the eastern side of the town beside the River Tywi. Dinefwr Castle is within walking distance. The station was built by the Llanelly Railway, who reached the town from the Llanelli direction in 1852. An extension on to Llandovery was constructed by the subsidiary Vale of Towy Railway (opening in 1858), whilst the branch line to Carmarthen followed in 1865. In its heyday, the station had four platforms serving trains for the Heart of Wales line as well as trains from Carmarthen via the Llandeilo - Abergwili Jcn branch line (closed in 1963). The direct line to Swansea Victoria has also gone and the surviving passenger trains now run via the old Llanelly Railway and the South Wales main line. The station building has been demolished, and until recently had only one platform in use as the passing loop here had been temporarily decommissioned (i.e. locked out of use) due to a lack of spare parts for the point machines. The second (southbound) platform has however now been reinstated along with the loop following the replacement of the points at both ends with new electrically worked units. All trains serving the station are operated by Arriva Trains Wales.
