Was on one of these yesterday from Newport to Bridgend. You can notice the difference when it's on electric, the acceleration out of the station in Newport is considerably faster. I think that's where they cut the journey times, the trains aren't really faster, but they get up to speed much quicker when they are electric. They turn the electric off and fire up the Diesel at Cardiff and you can notice the difference.
