Buses replace trains between Llandudno Junction and Blaenau Ffestiniog until further notice

Following severe flooding on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 March, damage has occurred to the infrastructure in multiple locations along the Conwy Valley line. Trains are currently unable to run between Llandudno Junction and Blaenau Ffestiniog.

You can view images of the damage here.
