‘The Stratford Upon Avon & Midland Junction Railway’ (or S.M.J.) was a small independent railway company which ran a line across the empty, untouched centre of England. It visited the counties of Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, Oxfordshire and a little of Buckinghamshire, only existing as the SMJ from 1909 to 1923. In 1923 the S.M.J.became a minor arm of the London Midland and Scottish (L.M.S.), then in 1948 'British Railways' 

Gone but not forgotten: "the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth"

2F WDs working to Bristol 5 Replies

In the 1950s/60s we had a regular working of a 2F Woodford Halse WD to Bristol. I was always intrigued by how they got there. Does anybody know if that was via the SMJR please?Continue

Hi

I’m looking for a copy of the film
“The Stratford Upon Avon & Midland Junction Railway” edited by Hillside Publishing some time ago.

This company is now out of business and cannot be called upon to get a copy.

If possible, I would wish to transfer the data of the DVD in mp4 format via internet?

Thanks to the Brexit it has become extremely expensive to purchase anything from the UK and have it sent to Belgium.
For info after paying the goods from a UK supplier, including the local VAT in addition to the transport costs, I must pay 21% Belgian VAT on the goods and the transport; 7% import duties on the lot plus € 25 administrative costs...
I am ready to pay the reasonable expenses for a copy of the DVD
Best regards
Jack

Hi Jack

I have a spare unused copy of 'The Shakespeare Route - The SMJ' DVD, as I had to purchase three from the supplier 'Wolverton Rail' to make it worthwhile for them to record new set of copies. Apparently the original publishers (Hillside Publications) were based in Rugby, but stopped trading a long while ago when they relocated to the Isle of Man. As I understand it, Wolverton Rail had an agreement with them to make copies upon request. Try Wolverton first (https://www.wolvertonrail.com), but if you have no luck get back to me and we can talk about my spare copy.

Regards

Mark

I would be keen on getting hold of the DVD too.
David
