Pantyffynnon railway station is a railway station serving the village of Pantyffynnon, in Carmarthenshire, West Wales. It is situated on the Heart of Wales Line. The station was originally fairly large and built adjacent to the Dynevor tinplate works and included station buildings, signal box, freight yard and from 1931 a small railway locomotive shed.

Little remains to show the former glories of Pantyffynnon. The original station platforms and footbridge have been razed to the ground. A single platform remains in use with a single remaining building. The other platform remains bare but for weeds with the track lifted. The old Amman Valley branch line through Ammanford and Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen which joined here to the other side of the current platform was closed in its entirety along with the yard after the closure of Abernant Colliery. The railway shed (closed 1964) and turntable are also gone, with nothing to reveal their former existence. The junction was re-instated for freight services only in 2006 as EWS requested that part of the line be re-instated to serve Tairgwaith Colliery.

The Amman Valley Railway Society has also been attempting to reinstate the Amman valley line as a heritage railway, although the EWS plans may prevent this in the short term.

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.
