'O' Gauge Blisworth Station

The Stratford-Upon-Avon and Midland Junction Railway’s ‘mainline’ ran from Stratford- upon- Avon to Blisworth, where it had its own station (opened 1866) adjacent to the LNWR station. The company operated some 75 miles of track through sparsely populated countryside from Broom Junction in the west and Olney in the east. Passenger service was withdrawn in 1952 and goods in 1965

In 1853 the station was rebuilt 880 yds to the north, closer to the junction to facilitate changing trains. The station closed on 4 January 1960, and was demolished soon after.
