‘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"

2F WDs working to Bristol 5 Replies

In the 1950s/60s we had a regular working of a 2F Woodford Halse WD to Bristol. I was always intrigued by how they got there. Does anybody know if that was via the SMJR please?Continue

Hello All.

Map 4 of a sequence of maps beginning at
http://www.blisworth.org.uk/images/Railways/Station%20Maps/01-south...
shows the fairly early arrangement for the SMJ line at Blisworth.  As the scale, on a 17" monitor, is 275:1, you may find interest on all sections.  I suspect that, as it appears to be a manager's map, that the features cover a range of dates from maybe 1880 onwards.  Looking at the signal "trees" can anyone date those?

Sorry about the large watermark!         Best Regards  Tony Marsh
