Faster trains between London and Swansea from mid December

It is just under 100 days until South Wales train services will be transformed, as Great Western Railway speeds up its timetable, offering faster journey times and more frequent services to key locations. Swansea-London journey times will reduce by c.14 minutes on a 3 hour journey.

In the biggest timetable change on the network since 1976, GWR’s Intercity Express Trains will take advantage of infrastructure improvements to run to a fully electric timetable between Swansea, Cardiff and London for the first time.
