‘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"

Many years ago I purchased the aluminium Hawkeye Binton station sign, which I restored andd kept for a number of years before selling it at auction. I recently repurchased this sign.

Not sure how to up load photo to the text box so upload photo taken today in Towcester of graffiti on the bridge over the river. The graffiti artist signature coincidentally looks like SMJ - spooky
