Tonypandy station is on the Porth-Ystrad Rhondda section of the Cardiff-Treherbert line, which is part of the Valley Lines network.
Trains run at roughly half hour intervals in each direction except on Sundays when the service is limited to every two hours.
The length of the platform at Tonypandy might cause a few raised eyebrows: it was designed to accommodate six to eight-car trains, none of which have ever been seen here! The normal train length is two carriages; during rush hour you might be lucky enough to see four-car trains.
If crossing the main road, I suggest using the pedestrian (zebra) crossing, as the road can get very busy at times.
<p><b>About SideTracked caches</b></p>
<p>SideTracked caches are intended to provide quick Cache-and-Dashes at Train Stations. If hiding one PLEASE BE SENSIBLE and remember that in this day and age, public transport is under greater scrutiny than ever before, so, although these caches should be quick and easy grabs, PLEASE don’t place a Cache where it could cause alarm.
