‘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'

Share 'Line Tour - Mini Tour - Ravenstone Wood Junction'
Unplanned but most enjoyable afternoon after work with the man responsible for all of this, Andy walking from Piddington on the Northampton - Bedford line.
Many thanks to our host Norman.
I intended to come again with the "Tourists" later in the year.
