James Rojas and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa discuss Rojas' model of planned transit projects in Los Angeles in June.

Planner James Rojas will be leading folks interested in transportation through his signature interactive modeling process in a trio of workshops on Saturday, helping anyone interested to build a model showed how high-speed rail should work for Los Angeles.

The sessions at El Pueblo's Pico House take place at 11am, 12pm and 1pm. They're part of railLA, the new planner-backed rail group that Rojas co-chairs.

Participants will use blocks, legos and other odds and ends to create their transit cityscapes.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa was among those on-hand to introduce Rojas' model of Los Angeles transit projects last month. It was Rojas' last project as a planner for Metro.

More information on Saturday's sessions can be found via Facebook and on the railLA website.
