Very nice work. Are you using San Juan Evolution couplers?
Using more modern rolling stock is an interesting freelance idea that can be loosely grounded in truth since the Rio Grande had started converting more modern standard gauge cars to narrow gauge in the 50s.
My layout is freelance; an On30 prosperous1950's narrow gauge railroad based in the Eastern Virginia Tidewater area that runs to the mountains.
Most of my rolling stock is either San Juan Car Co. or Accucraft. I acquired about 40 pieces for almost nothing before I started the current layout. I have a dozen Bachmann hoppers and six cabeese.
I have 3 MMI On30 locos (acquired with the rolling stock deal) that I equipped with Tsunami but do not operate as they are horrible runners. I operate using 2 B'mann 2-8-0s, 2 B'mann 4-6-0s, and 2 BLI 2-8-0s.
Everything is equipped with Kadee 803/807 couplers at On3 height. I find them to be much more reliable than the San Juans.
