About Owners
 
London Midland & Scottish Railway Ltd., London

The London Midland and Scottish Railway (L.M.S.) was a British railway company formed on 1 January 1923. The company had numerous interests other than railway operations. The LMS acquired numerous docks, harbours and piers from its predecessors. These ranged in size from major ports at Barrow-in-Furness and Grangemouth through ferry harbours such as Holyhead, Heysham, Stranraer and Fleetwood to much smaller facilities including piers on the Thames and Clyde. The LMS also inherited docks at Goole.
