I heard the other day about how the EMR 810s will have to run on Diesel from 5 miles out of St Pancras to Bedford because the existing OHLE is only capable of 100 MPH. Then I realised that the 810s are not planned to stop at Bedford as the 360s will take over that route, so how will they change power without stopping. Can these Trains change power supply while in motion?

Yes, 80x can change over on the move.
