Today, a manicured lawn occupies the trackbed between the platforms at Trawsfynydd Station. It was the largest intermediate stopping point on the Great Western's Bala-Blaenau Ffestiniog branch, boasting a loco shed, water tank and signal box.

Just to the north were military sidings serving a nearby Army range. After World War II, train loads of unused ammunition came here for disposal.

The last train to travel the line passed through the station on 27th January 1961.
