Description:
Hengoed railway station is the name of an operational National Rail station situated in Hengoed on the Rhymney Line of the Valley Lines network.

The current station was initially named Hengoed & Maesycwmerr when opened by the Rhymney Railway in 1858. Then on railway grouping into the Great Western Railway in 1923 it became known as Hengoed Low Level to avoid confusion.The GWR Handbook 1923-1947 by David Wragg, Sutton Publishing, 2006.

Hengoed High Level railway station

Immediately adjacent, and crossing Hengoed Low Level was another station which originally shared the name Hengoed & Maesycwmmer, serving the Taff Vale Extension from Pontypool to Quakers Yard. This station was renamed in 1923 to Hengoed High Level. The High Level station was immediately at the end of the Hengoed Viaduct, which carried the line across the Rhymney valley to Maesycwmmer. It was closed in 1964. The line is disused, but the viaduct has been restored and is now part of the National Cycle Network. Some remains of the platforms which have also been preserved.

Maesycwmmer railway station

Amazingly, the towns shared a third railway station on the former Rumney Railway, which on amalgamation with the Brecon and Merthyr Tydfil Junction Railway was called Maesycwmmer & Hengoed. In 1923 it was renamed simply Maesycwmmer.
