Why buy your Plasticville parts and accessories piecemeal,
when you can basically buy an entire town ALL AT ONCE !!!

This HUGE auction contains over sixty Plasticville buildings. Everything from homes to trailers to commercial buildings, post office, schoolhouse, church, barns... every kind of building you can imagine. There are too many buildings in this set to even list them all individually, but just some highlights:

Four mobile homes/trailers with awnings Two-story colonial house with original box Fire station Two different churches (one church is missing two pieces for the steeple) Several ranch-style single-story houses Post office building Airport terminal (roof piece is missing) Railroad car-style diner Two barns (one appears to be a larger scale than O-scale) Two-story bank building Two train stop depot buildings, with loading ramps

The list goes on and on.

But if you're going to buy an entire town, you aren't buying just the buildings. It's the people who make a town. Well, the people, the telephone poles, the street lamps, the fire hydrants, the railroad crossing gates, the trees, the street signs and billboards, even the cows in the pasture. And this auction contains all of those parts, too.

Bag of more than 20 telephone/power line poles Bag of modern-style street lamps Bag of tall and short "historical district" retro-style street lamps Two bags of trees - 5-6 trees per bag Bag of cows Bag of railroad signage Bag of miscellaneous street signs - railroad crossing, streetcorner signs, etc. Bag of miscellaneous parts - park benches, fire hydrants, etc. Bag of fencing

All of these parts, all together in one auction. Whether it's for play or for serious hobbyists and collectors, this is the ultimate box lot set to help you get your model train or car layout going. There are only a few model figures of people in the set. But there's just about everything else you could think of to get you started on your own miniature model town.

Please note that these Plasticville models are old; some of them VERY old. These are not collector sets that have been kept in the original packaging and stored until they go up in value; these models have been assembled and used before. Some of the pieces are dirty and dusty. A few of the buildings have one or two parts missing. A few buildings have wall pieces that are broken at the corners, so they will need to be taped or glued together. A couple of them have marks from where someone has apparently tried to paint them in the past. And only one of them has its original box with it.

The price of this box lot might seem a little high to some people. But we've priced out how much individual Plasticville buildings are actually selling for on eBay lately. The starting bid on this box lot comes out to approximately $5.00 per building, which is less than most of these buildings have sold for recently in individual auctions. And in addition, you are getting all of the accessories - tree, telephone poles, street lamps, etc. - that would cost you a lot extra if you were to try to collect them separately.

All in all, this is a very rare opportunity to acquire a large number of classic Plasticville model buildings in one auction, along with all of the accessories you need to round out your display. How often do you get the chance to buy an entire town in one fell swoop? Don't pass up this incredible, huge box lot auction!
