‘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"

In case anyone's interested, my book "Lost Railways of Warwickshire", published by Countryside Books, is now in the shops. Chapter 7 is devoted to the SMJ. I acknowledge my debt to this website in both Introduction and the bibliography

Thanks you very much for the kind words and the mention. I feel one good turn deserves another, where when who and how much is your book?

It's £11.99 and I believe it will be on most bookshops, i.e. places like Waterstone, in Warwickshire.
