Its situation is unusual, being located on a short length of sharply curved single track between two tunnels. The station is an unstaffed halt on the Cambrian Coast Railway with passenger services to Tywyn, Barmouth, Harlech, Porthmadog, Pwllheli, Machynlleth and Shrewsbury. Trains stop on request.
Between 1 January and 30 March, the station was closed as Network Rail replaced the previous timber platform with an improved structure coated with glass reinforced plastic. This should reduce needed maintenance work as well as improve access to the station. They also improved the station lighting, as well as improvements on the tunnels either side of the station. During the closure, Arriva Trains Wales provided a taxi service to those wishing to use the station.
