Work begins this week on a five million pound upgrade to Llandudno railway station.
The Welsh Government says detailed design work will now start in an effort to enhance the station. There will be a new frontage, ticket office, improved bus facilities and customer information systems.
The Minister with responsibility for Transport, Carl Sargeant, said, "We strive to make rail travel more comfortable and attractive to the public.
"In addition to providing a positive first impression for visitors to Llandudno this project will also provide a boost to the local economy as local employment will be used in the refurbishment of the station."
The project is due to finish in 2014. The facade of the new station has been designed to reflect the Victorian architecture of the town.
The Welsh Government says the Minister for Local Government and Communities will be announcing a further programme of station improvements around Wales shortly.
