Rogerstone railway station (Welsh: "Tŷ-du") is one of the stations on the Ebbw Valley Line. The station is situated on the site of former rail sidings in the district of Rogerstone in the city of Newport. The station is within the "Afon Village" housing development. Access to the single platform station and associated car park is off Lily Way.

Prior to direct trains to Newport High Street, a dedicated rail linc bus operated between the station and Newport city centre via Celtic Springs, Cleppa Park, Tredegar Park and the Royal Gwent Hospital, from the reopening of the Ebbw Valley Line. This subsidised service was withdrawn in May 2008, due to low usage.
