Llangefni, county town of Anglesey, was the major intermediate staion on the Amlwch branch. Although passenger and freight services to the town ended in 1964, freight trains to Associated Octel at Amlwch continued to pass through, and in 1983 there was a series of special passnger workings on the branch as well.

The first loco-hauled train over the branch for nearly 20 years approaches Llangefni behind 40058 on the 14th May 1983.

40122 at Llangefni 10/12/83 (s2851.jpg)

6 months later, another special passes the site of Llangefni station. 40122 is "tailing" as the train heads towards Amlwch. The station building still stands, 19 years after closure to passengers. This station only ever had the one platform, but it is difficult to believe that there was a loop here - in the very narrow space to the left of the remaining line. A signal post survives - just visible as the train curves out of sight.
