Description:
Cardiff Queen Street railway station () is Wales' second busiest railway station in Cardiff, Wales. It is one of 20 stations in the city and two in the city centre, the other being Cardiff Central.

In 2005, the station was fitted with new ticket gates, operational when the station is manned, which allow easier access in both directions.
