‘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'

A far more up to date question than my last one re: North End and Warwick Road - but the same area of the SMJ line.
Does anyone have precise dates and details for the bridging of the M40 motorway, when the SMJ was realigned slightly from its old course?
Was the line actually closed for a period of time while this was carried out, or was the new section constructed and then the line switched over…
