‘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 note that the BINTON station sign is up for auction. I see that it is made of aluminium, not cast iron, is this normal for LMS signs?

Richard Maund commented on Andy Thompson's article The Olney Branch
"It is usually stated that the Towcester - Olney (SuAT&MJR) line opened for goods traffic on 13 April 1891 (the very day the "joint committee" was brought into operation). But what provenance is there for such goods operation starting then? "
