‘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'

The caption sticker is missing from this picture, taken on July 17 1966 and I think it must be at Stratford. My memory is a blank - can anyone help?(Now we know it is the SMJ north spur to Old Town station seen from the Great Western line.) The line to Broom went just to the far side of those apartment blocks.
