QUOTE (Doug @ 26 Jul 2007, 19:44) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>I am also planning on using shunters to move coaches up to the mainline from the yards below. A pair of Class 20 locos in a consist will haul up any train up my 1:40 ramp. They will then pass on the rolling stock to the mainline engines that went up by themselves or with a lighter load.

I'd never thought of that! Far more positive than telling someone they're screwed!

Seriously I usually recommend 1:50 minimum but like most things all situations are unique and though not relevant to Mike's situation even consider two separate levels rather than use inclines.
