Danescourt railway station is a railway station serving the Danescourt suburb of Cardiff, Wales.

The station is the first stop after Radyr on the Cardiff City Line 3 miles (5 km) north of Cardiff Central. The City Line was freight only from its opening (in 1859) until 1987, when British Rail introduced a passenger service between Cardiff Central and Radyr.[1]

Both of the station's two platforms are accessible for disabled passengers via ramps. The Cardiff Central-bound platform is accessible via a bridge, whilst the Radyr-bound platform is accessible via a residential road (Beale Close) off the main road (Danescourt Way). A footbridge links the two platforms.

Some non-stop passenger trains pass through in both directions.

Services[edit]

Journey times from Danescourt are 12 minutes to Cardiff Central and seven minutes to Radyr. There is no Sunday service.[2]
