‘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 the latest Railway Magazine I read that the "our" 4F should be steaming again on the KWVR late 2010.

I also note that there are several SMJ related items in the Great Central Railwayana Ltd auction on 16th January 2010. These include:
* Blisworth totem,

Not sure I have seen that one Jim. Think I have seen similar,

I didn't do a full search on SMJ just Towcester.
Not sure I'd pay more than £2.00 for such a print though but that is just me.
