Baglan railway station is a minor station in the village of Baglan, Neath Port Talbot County Borough, Wales. It is a stop on the South Wales Main Line, served by Arriva Trains Wales Swanline regional trains between Swansea and Cardiff.
It is a relatively new station, opened on 2 June 1996. The station is located at street level but passenger access is from the Seaway Parade flyover. It is close to Neath Port Talbot general hospital.
The station has 2 platforms:
- Platform 1, for westbound trains towards Swansea
- Platform 2, for eastbound trains towards Cardiff Central
The station is unmanned - there is no ticket office nor are there any platform entry barriers. Passengers must purchase tickets on board trains.
The typical service pattern is one train approximately every two hours in each direction (with extras at weekday peak times). Some westbound trains continue on to Carmarthen & Milford Haven whilst some eastbound trains are extended to Newport, Hereford & Manchester Piccadilly. The current Sunday service is very limited, with just two trains each way calling. A normal weekday service operates on most Bank Holidays.
