The build is ~99% correct, with only a 'LEGOREDO' decal and stickers missing. (I also substituted the Technic shock absorber with an alternative mold).

This set no. 6765 'Gold City Junction' came out in 1996, the second-largest model in the "Western" theme.

Even though it only lasted for two seasons, "Western" became one of the LEGO System's staples in the mid-90s, as iconic and groundbreaking as "Pirates," "Castles," and some "Space" factions.

The "Western" theme signified a pioneering shift for LEGO. The company finally embraced a growing demand for more "thrills" and aggressive, realistic portrayals of violence in the entertainment industry, specifically toys. (See this excellent write-up I found online for a more in-depth analysis of LEGO competitors taking advantage of the company's reluctance to accept these new standards for "violence" in toys: https://www.quora.com/Why-did-LEGO-discontinue-the-Classic-Space-theme.)

Set in the second half of the XIX century, in Old West, "Western" introduced modern, realistic weapons: revolvers, a Winchester rifle, and even a 1x2 flat tile "dynamite" decal (which re-appeared in numerous sets ever since). Even more curiously, one of the "Western" factions, Bandits, had the evilest and scariest faces so far! (Note how all "bad guys" and villains before, including pirates, even skeletons and ghosts, still had a standard, happy smiling grin.)

Right after the "Western" debut, during the 1996-'97 season, LEGO presented several other factions and themes that had menacing, evil, and explicitly dark characters and themes. See, for instance, "Time Twisters" or "Fright Knights."
