A finer grit and a light hand should produce pretty good results with a belt sander. I think that the key is to keep it moving. Some people use belt sanders to finish floors so if they can get a surface good enough for a glossy finish, you should be able to get a pretty nice appearance on siding. If your belt sander has a sanding frame, that may help as well, though I’ve never tried that on narrow boards. I’ve actually stripped an old table top for refinishing using a sanding frame and all I had to do was finish sanding with my ROS afterwards which you won’t need to do with the siding.
