Cogan railway station is a railway station serving Cogan in the Vale of Glamorgan in Wales. It is located on the Vale of Glamorgan Line 2¾ miles (4 km) south of Cardiff Central on the way to Barry Island and Bridgend.
The current platforms were constructed in 1898 but, until 1968, Cogan had two additional and separate platforms across the other side of the main Windsor Road, opened twenty years earlier in 1878 and located on the Penarth and Sully branch line, that extended from the Cogan Junction points around the coastline through Lavernock and Sully to where it rejoined the main line at Cadoxton. That through link was closed under the effects of the Beeching Axe and the rail spur now terminates at Penarth.
Dingle Road Halt and Penarth station remain open but the two platforms at Cogan were closed when the line was reduced to a single track spur. Most of the station buildings still stand but have been used by several private businesses including a shooting range, a garden centre, a second hand car lot and a marine chandlers. The area originally covered by the Cogan and Penarth dock's railway sidings and engine maintenance sheds now contains a large Tesco supermarket.
Monday to Saturday daytimes, there is a 15 minute frequency northbound to Cardiff Central and beyond. Southbound, there are three trains per hour to Barry Island and an hourly service to Bridgend via Rhoose.
Evenings and Sundays, there is generally a half-hourly service to Cardiff Central. Evenings, there is an hourly service southbound to Barry Island and Bridgend whilst on Sundays there is a half-hourly service to Barry Island and one to Bridgend every two hours.
