WILD WEST BUILDINGS
TIMPO WILD WEST CITY
Catalogue Number 260
This is how our town began. Five wild west buildings on a printed cardboard play-sheet. I bought this set in the mid1970s. The 1:32 scale pre-coloured plastic buildings were supplied in kit form. Since each building included cowboy figures, the town's population was off to a good start.
The following items were included in this set:
- Silver Dollar Saloon
- Marshal's Office
- Stage Coach Station
- Assorted Cowboys & Horses
- Assorted Cacti
- Cardboard Playsheet
This set was first released in 1968 in an artwork box. In 1970 the photo-style boxes were introduced. In 1972 the set was replaced with much smaller and less detailed buildings. Since these later buildings were seriously under-sized for the scale, we don't use them in our town.
Over the years, we've expanded our town with the other buildings from the Timpo wild west range.
- Ranch House
- Livery Stable

- Golden Nugget Saloon
- Livery Stable
- Sheriff's Office
- Staging Post / Long Ranch
- First National Stock Bank
Whilst the Timpo buildings are very good, these Britains models were larger and take detail to a higher level. Like the Timpo buildings, these models were supplied in kit form. Britains re-issued the Bank, Saloon and Sheriff's Office for a short time in the mid 1990s.
