UK - London, Midland and Scottish Railway Company

Welcome to the LMS Society web site, which is concerned with the London, Midland and Scottish Railway Company, which owned and operated a large part of the railway system in the United Kingdom from January 1923 until December 1947.

The London, Midland and Scottish Railway Company was formed as a result of the enactment of the 1921 Railways Act, which grouped 115 railways into 4 main companies; the grouping took effect from 1st January 1923, when the 'Big Four' companies came into existence; the other three being the London and North Eastern Railway, Southern Railway and Great Western Railways. There were three railways that remained jointly owned, the Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway (LMS and SR), the Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway (LMS and LNER), 50% of each was owned by the LMS and the Cheshire Lines Committee, of which the LMS' share was one-third, the LNER owning two thirds.
