‘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'

Does anyone have a timetable of just about the time the line closed to passengers please? I only have a reprint of the 1936 Bradshaws.
Also, were parcels trains ever routed along the SMJ during BR days?
Finally what was the intensity of freight workings in about 1953 please?
Many thanks for any timetable related info.
