Gelert's Farm Halt (or Fferm Gelert in Welsh) on the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway was opened in 1988. It is a simple platform alongside the main shed at Gelert's Farm Works.

All trains in one direction stop at the halt for the passengers to visit the museum & Miniature Railway. The halt is a request stop for trains in the other direction. Until the end of 2005 trains stopped in the Pen-y-mount (up) direction. From the 2006 season, trains have stopped in the Porthmadog (down) direction. The platform was rebuilt and extended in 2006.

In early 2007, the platform was extended a further 40ft in the northerly direction and a ramp constructed to enter the North Yard. A water supply has been installed at the southern end of the platform for watering locomotives.

Immediately next to it is the minature railway terminus, signed only in English
