Llanilar railway station was on the Carmarthen to Aberystwyth Line (originally called the Manchester and Milford Railway before being transferred to the Great Western Railway.

History

The station opened in August 1867 to serve the nearby village. The station closed in December 1964 when services were truncated at Strata Florida, following flood damage by the River Ystwyth to the line one mile east of Llanilar. Formal closure was confirmed two months later. In 2001 the platform survived in 2002. The station had a signal box set back from the platform, a signal box and a combined waiting room and ticket office. The goods yard had a weighing machine and several sidings.
