Era III could be reasonably modelled with the range of steam and diesel locomotive options to repaint or kitbash, together with the NOHABs available ready-to-run, and in addition to the handful of era III freight cars available RTR, there is an array of options for freight cars to be repainted. Passenger equipment could be an issue - the SNCB probably operated ex-DRG passenger equipment in the 1950, but you'll have to research that on your own. Still, a freight-only scenario could certainly be modelled without excessive difficulty.

Era IV is likewise doable - if one limits oneself to a non-electrified line, as any SNCB electric locomotive of the era would have to be scratchbuilt. But with repainting a NOHAB and lightly modifying a West German V60 into a Belgian class 80 shunter, motive power needs are certainly met for mainline and shunting needs. There are two passenger cars available for the period, but these were used on long-distance express trains; equipment for domestic trains will be a matter of scratchbuilding. Like for era III, there are a couple of freight cars available, but plenty that can be repainted.

I haven't found any RTR passenger cars, however there are a number of freight cars that are/were available in RTR form.

SNCB/NMBS has own "Eurofima" cars, too. So you can also use them without kitbashing.
