Ponthir railway station was a railway station in the village of Ponthir in Torfaen, South Wales, UK.

History

The station was opened by the Pontypool, Caerleon and Newport Railway on 21 December 1874 or 1 June 1878. The Great Western Railway advertised in The Cambrian on 12 January 1877 for Tenders for the construction of a station and station yard at Ponthir. Goods facilities were withdrawn on 9 June 1958 and the station was closed to passengers on 30 September 1962.

The original station building is now a private house and a level crossing on the site is still in use. The former station is located on the Welsh Marches Line.
