Near the centre of Cardiff lie Leckwith and South Canton, and Ninian Park station serves these pretty suburbs. The current station was opened to passengers in 1987, but the original was built in 1912, closing to regular services in the late 1930s.  Just five minutes walk from Cardiff City Stadium, the station was in use whenever football games were played. However, since 2011, whenever Cardiff City are in a match, the trains do not run due to the platform’s inability to cope with large numbers of passengers.
