‘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'

For nearly 50 years I have wanted one of these to go with my SMJR weight restriction notice. Thanks to an auction, I have now got one and fulfilled a very lengthy quest. I just wonder where on the line it came from, and whether I have seen it before in the distant past!
