Ty Glas railway station is a railway station serving business and industrial sites in Llanishen and Heath, Cardiff, Wales. It is located on the Coryton Line 3.7 miles (6.0 km) north of Cardiff Central. Ty Glas is a quarter of a mile from the next station along at Birchgrove.

The Coryton branch Line is a single-track, though unlike other stations on the branch, Ty Glas has entrances at both the north and south of the station; access from the south requires passengers to cross the track to reach the platform sited on the north side of the track.

Passenger services are provided by Arriva Trains Wales as part of the Valley Lines network.
