‘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"

Add me to the list of recipients of this unusual email. This is the second message from him this year and the second time I've deleted it! An unknown, unsolicited message that, unless more information is forthcoming, I will continue to ignore them.Continue

It has always remained a favourite place with me but also the whole of the GCR in general and visited many well-know parts over the years.
