There was this restaurant that I have taken school field trips to when I was younger. It was an old restuarant and on the inside there were a bunch of model trains and miniature scenery behind a glass that you can view? I'm sorry if the description is vague, it's all I can really remember. I'm not sure if it was in Tucson which is where I went to school, I remember the ride there was kind of long.
Thanks.

sounds like Hidden Valley Inn on Sabino Canyon Rd.....if so, they had a bad fire several years ago, lost most of the western kitsch, and might now be closed.....

see if this number works for them:

Jean LeRoy was a master wood carver in Tucson. He was a former clown for the Cole Brother Circus and Ringling Brother’s Barnum and Bailey Circus. In 1978 Jean LeRoy opened a miniature museum in Trail Dust Town. (6541 E. Tanque Verde.) Jean LeRoy died in 1981, after his death some of his carvings went on display at the Hidden Valley Inn Restaurant.
LeRoy’s wood carvings on display at the restaurant consisted of miniatures of the Cole Brothers Circus, Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, a ghost town and 25 Indian tribes.
The Hidden Valley Inn Restaurant burned down on August 7, 1995. None of LeRoy’s wood carvings were lost in the fire, because the wood carvings had been returned to the LeRoy family in 1994.

Default That's it!

That was exactly it!

Thanks for the help, guys, nobody really knew which restaurant I was talking about. I'm really sad to hear it's no longer there though, I was hoping to visiting it again one day.
