Could you explain what the SAM “safety link & pin” coupler is/was?

As you suggested, most (all?) California and Nevada narrow gauge lines used 3/4 size knuckle couplers (if they used knuckles). The exception being the NCO, which purchased used cars from the F&CC which came with full size (size D) couplers. For a short period of time the NCO converted one end of the "new" cars to 3/4 size and ran them in pairs. The Pacific Coast Ry used 3/4 size.
