One of the stations on the relatively recently reopened Ebbw Valley railway which runs from Cardiff Central to Ebbw Vale, south Wales. This survived until 2002 as a freight-only line used by the steelworks at Ebbw Vale, although all passenger services closed (including a through-line to Port Talbot, which hasn't reopened) in 1962. Reopened to passengers in 2008, this reborn route provides a vital link with the outside world.
