Serving the small town of Trefforest near Cardiff, this station was built to cater for the workers at the local industrial estate. Opened in 1942, its two platforms were given new waiting rooms in 2016.

Famous for being the birthplace of Sir Tom Jones in 1940, born just before the station was built, Trefforest is also well known for Treforest FC, its successful association football team. With a purpose-built stadium, the Seniors play in the respected South Wales Alliance League.

Trefforest is the Welsh spelling, while the English is with a single F; the two are interchangeable.
