That's a fairly steep gradient !

First thing to check - is the track & wheels perfectly clean - i.e. no oil/greaase or anything else that could cause slippage ?

2nd thing - are all the other (non-powered) axels running freely & if there are any pick ups for coach lighting are they having a braking effect ?

You could try adding some weight.

Does the unit "grip" better in one direction ? If you have not try running the unit the "other way round". Sometimes it's worth a try !

Let us know how you get on.
