‘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 very short clip of a cricket match at Roade. A goods train passes. Could it be on the SMJR?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnPSvt-NEeIContinue

John. You are most welcome! We look forward to the results of the trip to the loft! Did you say T9 120 passed over SMJ metals? If I wasn't into the SMJ I would be a Southern man (having the former Southern line from Waterloo to Exeter running along the end of my garden!) I wonder if Dick has mention of the T9 in his forum entry about Other Locos on SMJ metals!
I hopeyou can find the photos too!

Andy
