‘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"
A SMJR 1919 RULEBOOK SOLD AT AUCTION RECENTLY AT £55. PURPLE COVER WITH FULL CO TITLE BUT CONTENTS STANDARD RCH ISSUE. A BARGAIN I THOUGHT. I ADD SOME PHOTOS OF ORIGINAL 1950s BEER LABELS WHICH MIGHT BRING LOCAL MEMORIES OF A BREW PERHAPS AVAILABLE IN THE STRATFORD STATION REFRESHMENT ROOMS IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS !
