Question by Lone Wolf: What is agood gradient percentage for HO scale model train setups?
I measured everything out and got a 6.6% grade. Is that acceptable?
Answer by Steven D
Yes, make sure your locos can pull the loads though. It will tke some trial and error but that’s part of the hobby. Most full size railroads only have about 3 % grades. HO just doesn’t have the room to have such a low %. Make sure your traction wheels and track are clean.
