The Caerphilly village of Gilfach is served by this small station, known locally as Gilfach International due to its diminutive size. With platforms too short to cope with many passenger trains, passengers can only alight from the front few carriages. The region’s claim to fame lies on the backs of several international bowlers, including Audrey Mullins, Carl Wood and Kristian Crocker.
