Dinas Rhondda railway station is a railway station serving the Dinas, Penygraig and Trealaw districts of Tonypandy, Wales. It is located on the Rhondda Line. The station has one platform with one small station shelter and is accessible by a small connector road. There is evidence of a previous platform, which originally served North bound trains to Treherbert, but this was left abandoned after rationalisation in 1982, which saw the removal of the North bound line. Today the platform is heavily overgrown. Surprisingly, it has a car park, even though it's one of the smaller stations on the line.

Services[edit]

Monday-Saturday, there is a half hourly service to Cardiff Central southbound and to Treherbert northbound. This drops to hourly in the evenings and two-hourly in each direction on Sundays.
