Wildmill railway station is a railway station serving the district of Wildmill, Bridgend, South Wales. It located on the Maesteg Line from Cardiff via Bridgend.

The station was opened by British Rail on 16 November 1992 but closed the four hours after it opened due to the station shelter being one inch too close to the platform edge.[citation needed]

It was reopened nearly four weeks later, on 12 December 1992.[1]

Passenger services are operated by Arriva Trains Wales as part of the Valley Lines network for local services.
