Formerly known as Snowdon Ranger, Cwellyn Lake Station was a small station on the North Wales Narrow Gauge Railway, this section of which opened in 1878. Never successful either as a passenger or a goods line, the company, along with several other small companies, was incorporated into the Welsh Highland Railway in 1922. The line finally closed in 1937.
