Tal-y-Cafn railway station is located at Tal-y-Cafn on the Conwy Valley Line from Llandudno Junction to Blaenau Ffestiniog. This station is a request stop for northbound trains but not, according to timetables, for southbound trains. Prior to nationalisation the station was a train crossing station and was known as Tal-y-Cafn and Eglwysbach and publicised as the station for Bodnant Garden, which is in the parish of Eglwysbach and a lengthy up-hill walk.

The station buildings, mostly in private occupation are well maintained. The station is manned owing to the need for crossing gates on the bridge road.
