‘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"

I think Andy (TFC) has read the article you mentioned, I haven't read it myself but would like to. It was written by the head master of Towcester Grammar School at the time, Mr Beacock. Here a direct link to the Books and Articles page of this website if you ahven't found it via the Index page.

Hello Francis,

That's an interesting reference...

I don't have a 1956 Railway magazine...so I can't really answer the question I'm afraid.

But others may be better placed to give an answer...!

But I'll try to do some research on the subject!
