Risca and Pontymister Station, renamed from Risca in 2008, serves the Welsh town of Risca. On the Western Valley line, it opened in 1850, closing 12 years later, and reopening in 2008.

The area around Risca has been inhabited for thousands of years, with the remains of hillforts, and other human habitation littering the region. However, from the early 19th century, lead and coal mining has played a major role in Risca’s infrastructure, with the railway a necessary means of transportation. Nearby Pontymister was known for its steelworks, and many locomotives have ended their days here.
