Linking Blisworth, Banbury, Broom and Olney, the lines were known as the Stratford upon Avon & Midland Junction Railway, but for only 13 years. However, the name lives on, as does the fascination for a route which was not noted for passengers, but more for Midland iron ore to South Wales and Avonmouth bananas to London.
