Administrative/Biographical history: Penrhyndeudraeth and Talsarnau stations, Merionethshire, were on the Aberystwyth and Welsh Coast Railway.

In 1922, Cambrian Railways became part of the Great Western Railway, which itself became the British Railways, Western Region in 1948. Both stations remain in use.
