The Deptford Project Cafe, London: A 1960s commuter train carriage serves as an adorable, brightly-colored restaurant by graphic designer Morag Myerscough. The Deptford Project Cafe is part of an ongoing effort to revitalize the railway yard of the Deptford area in south east London. Its bathroom is a garden shed made to look like a shrine to Elvis Presley.
'the Deptford project' Our 35 tonne 1960's South East Trains carriage made its way from Essex on Valentine’s Day 2008 as our gift of love to Deptford High Street. A painstaking 2 miles per hour journey down the A11 brought the carriage to Deptford at midnight, clearing the railway bridge with 2 inches to spare. Conceptualised and pulled together by Raw Nerve and lovingly converted into a café/bistro by Studio Myerscough. http://www.thedeptfordproject.com
