‘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"

It was taken from an incomplete SMJR 1916 document. I'll see if there's anything else about Byfield ironstone sidings in it and put it on the website if there is. For info on Byfield ironstone workings go to the Byfield page through 'All the Stations' then 'E & W line' at the top of the home page. To see photos type Byfield or 'Ironstone' into the box with magnifying glass symbol at the top of the 'All photos' page.
If you know a fireman who actually worked even part of the SMJ then his memories swould be important. Was he based at Northampton,Woodford or Stratford? I've managed to contact two ex firemen but there aren't that many left who are interested in telling of their experiences.
