Llangenydd is a small fictitious village on the Lleyn Peninsula in N.Wales. It is now the terminus of a truncated ex-GWR branch line which ran to the coast. There is an ex-LMS branch joining nearby and trains from Caernarfon are also seen. A new BR road transport depot has been established to forward the goods on.

The main traffic consists of materials for a hydro­electric power station under construction inside a nearby mountain and supplies and personnel for the nearby joint-services training camp. Local rail traffic is still heavy as the roads in the area are still not too good. The station enjoys an Indian summer in the late 1950s/early 1960s before the final closure in the Beeching cuts.

Locos and stock are detailed and weathered proprietary items with some kit built, and DCC operated. Llangenydd appeared in the July 2010 Hornby magazine.
