Creigiau railway station was a former railway station in Creigiau in south Wales. It was on the Barry Railway between Efail Isaf and Wenvoe, which ran broadly north-south through Creigiau. To the east of the station, a second former line headed north-west towards Llantrisant, and south-east towards Cardiff. There was no connection between these lines, the Barry Railway line passing over the former Llantrisant and Taff Vale Junction Railway's and later Taff Vale Railway's Waterhall branch to the north of the station. During the Second World War, the station was used to transfer American military to the nearby hospital at Rhydlafar. The Railway closed in 1962.
Both platforms remain, albeit rather overgrown. The site of the station buildings and yard is now used by a coach operator. There are rumours about the line re-opening between Cardiff and Creigiau, and another rumour around the village says it will be paved over into a levelled-out concrete cycle and walking path to Cardiff. The final say lies with the Welsh assembly government.
