Brief description

"Barry has three stations serving it - this one, Barry Docks and Cadoxton stations, as well as the nearby Barry Island Station. Opened in February 1889, this station was necessary for trains carrying coal to the docks at Barry, which, in turn, was crucial to the economy of the area. In 2014, the station was subject to a £200m regeneration plan, aiming to improve train travel in and around the capital. This led to an extra third platform and improved signalling.

The town of Barry has several retail districts, which, alongside the gentrified and cosmopolitan Waterfront, makes it a popular place to visit for shopping, culture and nightlife. Head on over to our guide on the best things to do in Barry Island and Barry "

As at Feb 2023 "Barry railway station (WelshY Barri) is one of three stations serving the town of Barry, Vale of Glamorgan in South Wales. This one, Barry Town, is preceded by Barry Docks and Cadoxton stations on the Barry Branch which runs from Cardiff Central to a fourth station at Barry Island, the terminus. Barry is also the junction at the start of the Vale of Glamorgan Line which serves Rhoose and Llantwit Major and terminates at Bridgend.

Passenger services are operated by Transport For Wales as part of the Valley Lines network.

The station has a basic four trains per hour service (Mon-Sat) to Cardiff Central eastbound and three per hour to Barry Island and one per hour to Bridgend westbound. Eastbound trains usually continue beyond Cardiff Central to either Merthyr Tydfil or Aberdare (half-hourly to each).[4]

On Sundays, there are either 2 or 3 trains per hour to Cardiff Central (one each hour continuing to either Merthyr or Aberdare plus one every other hour to Rhymney), half-hourly trains to Barry Island and one every two hours to Bridgend.

Services are mainly operated by Class 150 Sprinter units, as which usually operate in pairs to form a 4-car service."
