Fernhill railway station is a railway station serving the village of Fernhill in the Cynon Valley, Wales. It is located on the Aberdare branch of the Merthyr Line. Passenger services are provided by Transport for Wales.

Services[edit]

There is a half-hourly service in each direction on Mondays to Saturdays, northbound to Aberdare and southbound to Cardiff Central and Barry Island. This drops to hourly in the evenings.

On Sundays there is a general 2-hourly service to Barry Island with an hourly service in the morning and in the late afternoon. This is due to a campaign by the local Assembly Member and a successful trial in December 2017. The extra services began in April 2018.[1]
