Ouch!! Using 11.25 r for the main curve going up. I saw the Scarm showing around 4 degrees. Right now Shays can pull that as i already set up to experiment with that. they can pull six cars up over 8 degrees I haven't checked the rise with the longer plan but i would think it would be say at least 3 degrees or less maybe. I still have to get the rest of the plan together. The mountains are the main issue right now. I am going to have to really chop them up bad. I may have to start all the way over using some of the layout and removing other things to make it work. Anyway i look at it, it will be fun.
