‘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"

How are you getting along with your Byfield project? 

And what about the Stephenson link?

Kind regards,

Peter

Hello Paul,

Related to Robert Stephenson,eh? Perhaps you should research your link carefully..

..although I think your Byfield project will take up more than enough of your time!

The SMJ site (the baby of Andy Thompson) has been around since 2009, and it was part of the site's aim to become a repository of all thinks SMJ. Glad that you have found it so!

Kind regards,

Peter
