‘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'

Another view of Binton station with ploughing engines as far as you can see (I can see 14 and there are others). I wonder what happened to this lot - possibly a bit early for the preservation movement and they may have been cut up for scrap. September 12 1966.
