Ceint railway station
Ceint railway station was a station in Anglesey, Wales situated on the Red Wharf Bay branch line between Holland Arms and Benllech. It was the first station after the line branched from the main Anglesey Central Railway. Opening in 1908 it was a very simple station with only one short 60 ft (18 m) platform on the Up (south-east) side and a wooden waiting hut. It was an unstaffed request stop with neither goods yard nor sidings. Ordnance Survey maps show that this, along with the station next on the line Rhyd-y-Saint are two of the most remote on the island.
