    I don't know the incline grade percent, but a good hobby store would know the answer off the top of there head. Factory made grades or trusle sets would work ok. Installing grades are better on straight sections but will work ok on curves. The rubber traction tires will grip better on straight, then curve. Also keep the rails clean from greese and oil. Install new rubber tires, if needed.
