‘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"

Hello Jean,

It so happens that I live in Bidford...Jubilee Close!!!

You probably have a good few tales to tell re the SMJ.. I think the members would be most interested to see anything that can add to the overall history of the line as published here....!!

And the GWR link.... I'm positively drooling over the prospects of more history!!!

Kind regards,

Peter S Lewis
