‘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"

Adrian,
Hope you enjoyed the dinner party! (We were at a family wedding yesterday..thankfully no washing up!!)
"City of Truro" is normally based at the GlosWarwicks..I've had a couple of opportunities to ride on the footplate..but only at gentle speeds!! 25mph!
