Penally railway station serves the village of Penally in Pembrokeshire, Wales. It is on the Pembroke Dock branch of the West Wales line operated by Transport for Wales. Penally station was closed on 15 June 1964, then reopened temporarily during the summers of 1970 and 1971 before being permanently open from 28 February 1972.
