Description:
Prestatyn railway station serves the town of Prestatyn in North Wales. It located on the North Wales Coast Line and was opened in 1848. The coming of the railway is credited with bringing prosperity to the town, which was an aspiring resort. The station is managed by Arriva Trains Wales and is served by their services from , and Manchester to Holyhead and Llandudno; also by Virgin Trains services to and from London Euston.

History

The first railway station in Prestatyn opened in 1848, when the Chester and Holyhead Railway reached the town. Later, the line became part on the London & North Western Railway, who quadrupled it through the town in 1897 and built the current station as part of the widening scheme. Although threatened with closure in the 1960s as part of the Beeching cuts, objections meant the station was reprieved. It has however reverted to double track operation, with the former fast line centre island platform the only one still in use.

The station was also once the junction for a branch line to Dyserth - this was opened by the LNWR in 1869, initially for mineral traffic only. A passenger service was instituted in 1905 but lasted only until 1930, when it was withdrawn by the LMS. It remained open to serve a quarry at Dyserth until complete closure in 1973....
