    This is very nice. My plan is to build a track that has a incline and descend from 6500ft to 8500ft and actually climb a mountain? What percentage of grade could I use for a 50 mile trip one way?

      Hey Sherril,

      Here’s what the experts had to say about your question:

      Well a 2% gradient in considered a maximum for scale trains and the real ones as well.
