The photo below shows the old Llandudno Junction level crossing in 1966, prior to it's closing and the building of the flyover which now carries the A547 to Conwy.

And below that, a photo taken from a similar position showing what the site looks like today (May 2017).
The crossing was situated somewhere behind the white van and under the new flyover.

On this modern view the road bending away to the right was the old A546 to Llandudno and is now used as a
service road for the cottages, retail and factory units that now exist and is named Glan Y Mor Road.
