Serving the small seaside town of Barmouth in Wales, Barmouth station lies on the Cambrian Coast Railway and runs regular services to Machynlleth, Shrewsbury, Birmingham and Pwllheli. The station was once much larger than it is today, extending further south, up until the early 1990s when the old disused platform was demolished to make way for a new bus stop and car park - the area surrounding the station was also redeveloped and a small supermarket was built on site. Trains leave the station every two hours - southbound towards Machynlleth, Shrewsbury and Birmingham International from platform 1, and northbound to Pwllheli from platform 2. The area of Barmouth is often remarked upon for its natural beauty. After a visit in the 19th century, legendary poet, William Wordsworth, commented 'with a fine sea view in front, the mountains behind, the glorious estuary running eight miles inland É Barmouth can always hold its own against any rival'.
