Introduction
At first the railway map of Warwickshire seems very complicated, but on close inspection a pattern emerges. Towards the north is the London and Birmingham Railway, which later became part of the London and North Western Railway, its Warwickshire portion running between Rugby and Birmingham. South of this artery a branch ran to Leamington, Warwick and Daventry and another northwards to Nuneaton. South-west of the LNWR was the Great Western Railway. This company had a parallel line from Birmingham to London which kept a respectful distance from that of its rival; in fact in Warwickshire neither company made inroads into the other's territory.
The Midland Railway's main line in the area was that which ran from Bristol and Gloucester through Birmingham to Derby. One Warwickshire branch was the Studley and Astwood Bank to Salford Priors section of the Barnt Green to Ashchurch loop; another the Whitacre to Hampton-in-Arden branch connecting with the LBR; the third MR branch being the Water Orton to Streetly section of the Walsall line. The Stratford-upon-Avon and Midland Junction Railway ran from Broom Junction, on the Barnt Green to Ashchurch line, to Towcester on the Northampton and Banbury line making connections with the MR, GWR, GCR and LNWR, but unfortunately for its finances did not give or take much through traffic.
