‘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'

This is a model layout of the Towcester station site of around
1940. The model of Towcester station was built by Iain Rice in the
late 60s/early 70s, for Charles Simpson. It featured in an issue of
Model Railways, about 1974, an article which included a number of
errors - such as the N&BJR going to Bicester!
