Ninian Park Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Ninian Park railway station serves the Leckwith and South Canton areas of Cardiff, just outside Cardiff city centre. The station opened in 1939 on football match days only for special trains. It appeared on Ordnance Survey maps from at least as early as 1946 until the early 1980s as a white circle, denoting that it was closed to regular passenger services. Ninian Park is the white circle west of the city centre: The station, is 1 mile (1.6 km) west of Cardiff Central. It was fully opened to regular passenger service in 1987 when the City Line reopened to passenger services . As the station was built for main line special trains it has the longest platforms on the line, accommodating up to nine coaches, rather than two coaches as at the other three stations opened at the same time. The station is near the former Cardiff City F.C. stadium and is next to the South Wales Main Line, but trains on this route do not stop. Cardiff Canton Traction Maintenance Depot is adjacent to the station.
