Coryton railway station is a railway station serving the Coryton and Pantmawr area of Cardiff. It is the terminus of the Coryton Line 5 miles (8.0 km) north of Cardiff Central in which the line originates from Cardiff Queen Street.

Passenger services are provided by Arriva Trains Wales as part of the Valley Lines network.

A station was first opened here by the Cardiff Railway in 1911 and relocated by the Great Western Railway in 1931. It was proposed for closure in the Beeching Report of 1963, but survived. The line beyond here closed in 1952.


Monday to Saturdays there is a half-hourly service along the City Line to Radyr, calling at Whitchurch, Rhiwbina, Birchgrove, Ty Glas, Heath Low Level, Cardiff Queen Street, Cardiff Central, Ninian Park, Waun-Gron Park, Fairwater, Danescourt and Radyr.

Evenings there is an hourly service.

Journey times to Queen Street is fifteen minutes, Central is nineteen minutes and Radyr is thirty-nine minutes. Connections can be made at Queen Street for other valley lines services and connections can be made at Central for mainline destinations across the rest of the country.

There is no Sunday service from Coryton.

Train services are mainly operated by Class 142 and Class 143 Pacer units and sometimes Class 150 Sprinter units.

Saturdays often sees the use of one-carriage Class 153 Super Sprinter units, as services are less busier and two-car units can be freed onto busier services.
