His own Radiator Springs

Inspired by the “Cars” movie, Roy Martinez Jr. of La Habra, Calif., is building a train-model set of the fictional Route 66 town of Radiator Springs. Here are some photos he e-mailed:

Martinez says he’s spent about 400 hours building the set, and he isn’t done. He needs to add detail work, finish Fillmore’s building, and install the toy rail lines. He’s going to use both N and HO scale railroads in the set.
