Geocache Description:

*NO NEED TO GO ON RAILWAY PROPERTY* This cahe is not on station or car park, CCTV in area. A quick Cache and Dash following the "SideTracked theme" Also easy access to the Taff Trail.

Radyr Station was opened in 1863 as part of the Taff Vale Railway, Radyr Station once sat at a busy railway junction and railway sidings known locally as Radyr Yard. Today, the railway sidings are gone, many houses built and the station has been remodelled into three platforms serving trains travelling up from Cardiff Queen Street Railway Station via Cathays Railway Station on their way to Treherbert in the Rhondda, Aberdare in the Cynon Valley and Merthyr Tydfil in the Taff Valley (all via Pontypridd). The station is also the point where the railway south splits into two, with the City Line carrying passengers down via the longer Danescourt and Fairwater route into Cardiff Central.

The car park is popular both on week days with commuters and on a weekends with cyclists looking for access to the Taff Trail; the section from here down to Cardiff Bay is very flat and very leisurely, and takes in beautiful areas such as Radyr Weir and Bute Park.
