Llangadog railway station serves the village of Llangadog near Llandeilo, West Wales. The station is on the Heart of Wales Line 36½ miles (59 km) north east of Swansea. The station is located at street level at Station Road beside the River Bran. The Garn Goch Iron Age hill fort is about three miles away from this station.
All trains serving the station are operated by Arriva Trains Wales. There are four trains a day in each direction from Monday to Saturday, and two services on Sundays.
The station had a siding accessing the Co-op Wholesale Society creamery, allowing milk trains to access the site. After rail access ceased, in the late 1970s, the creamery continued to operate until 2005, when it closed with the loss of 200 jobs.
There are four trains a day to Shrewsbury northbound from Monday to Saturday (plus a fifth to Llandovery) and five southbound to Llanelli and Swansea (the first train in each direction doesn't run on Saturdays); two services each way call on Sundays.
