I was recently at the opening of a new cafe in Deptford. It's a converted train carriage and ties in to all those childhood memories of wanting to create a home somewhere unusual. My fantasy childhood homes included tree-houses, train carriages, gypsy caravans, little isolated cottages, tents - nothing remarkable about that - lots of children I'm sure have the same yearning to have a place of their own. But the Train Cafe ties in the adult reality with the childhood desire - and that's to be applauded. They've done a great job - giving the carriage a makeover to create a great space for coffee, eats and hopefully in the future, workshops.
