I am going to make a loop or spiral for my trains to drop 300 feet. It will be sort of like the one in cheyyenne (sorry if spelled wrong). It will have 3 pass tracks, one small yard, Railroad workshop for broken down locos, and a coal mine. What is the maximum gradient that North American trains can climb without stalling?

There is a good discussion about max grades on real railroads at
