250 Coaches of trains designed by Andheri resident!!

To fashion models of suburban trains, as a child, Adil Diwecha (57) would use the red packaging cartons of a popular toothpaste brand. For the first time when he received the pocket money, he rushed to Chor Bazaar to get spare parts of engines to make a train model. He used to have always thought of himself as a creative person and tried to make as many railway models as he could. In Mumbai, Adil is one of many railway lovers who make paper and electric models of trains and tracks. He has also created models of many railway stations, signalling systems and overhead wires, to give his models a realistic feel since 40 years. His trains run manually. At the Church gate station on Western Railway as part of the railway’s celebrations, he along with two other train modelist presented their creations, as it turns 67 years. His mother encouraged him to make these models and the presentation. He used to enjoy making coaches of suburban trains. He has made models of more than 250 coaches of trains, including the Shatabdi, Rajdhani, Mahamana Express and the recently introduced AC local trains on the Mumbai suburban section. He has also made more than 60 models of steam engines and diesel engines as display pieces. He has presented his models at many stations in Mumbai, including Andheri and Church gate. His dream is to drive an entire train by himself.
