Garth (Mid Glamorgan) railway station is a railway station serving the village of Garth, Bridgend, Wales. It is located on the Maesteg Line from Cardiff via Bridgend. The station is known as Garth (Mid Glamorgan) in order to differentiate it from Garth (Powys).
It replaced a previous station, south of the current location, which was known as 'Troedyrhiw Garth', which closed in 1970. When the current station opened with the restoration of passenger services in 1992 by British Rail, there was much local debate whether to call the station 'Troedyrhiw Garth' once more because of the potential confusion with Garth Railway Station on the Heart of Wales Line in Powys. Upon opening on 28 September 1992 the new station was named simply Garth.
