Here is the "Beautifully Ugly"  Girls Train set from 1957, the Pepto Bismol Pink Locomotive, Tender and Gondola along with the Liliac Hopper, Yellow Boxcar, Green Boxcar and Robins Egg Blue Caboose looked more like an easter basket than a train set. But because these trains were such a marketing failure to young girls, they are a popliar train set to collect today. It is actually common to find these sets in good condition as they were not played with much after Dad got the for his daughter. Normally only ran around the christmas tree for a season or two and put back in the box.

The X736 Designation, rather than the more common 1587S, was used for A department store designation rather than a hobby shop.
