Biographical history

The London, Midland and Scottish Railway was formed on 1 January 1923 as an amalgamation of the Furness Railway Company, Glasgow and South Western Railway Company, Highland Railway Company, London and North Western Railway Company, Midland Railway Company, and the North London Railway Company. Many smaller companies were also absorbed at this time. In July that year these were joined by the Caledonian Railway Company and the North Staffordshire Railway Company. Through this gathering together of services the new London, Midland and Scottish Railway Company had lines stretching the full length and breadth of the British mainland, and also some lines in Ireland which had previously been owned by Midland.
