‘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'

Looking towards Towcester, with bridge No 124 in the distance. Just the platforms, in good condition, remained, but my notes say you could still see evidence of the goods shed, a siding and a track from the road running parallel to the station.(March 19 1966)
