Thank you; a fine difference indeed, and only really clear thanks to your photo. Will get to work with sandpaper......

I have just purchased an LGB 2046 rack loco The loco came without any instructions so, before I start to lay any track I would like to know what is the recommended rate of an incline that the locomotive can climb I was thinking or more like hoping it would be perhaps 1 in 25 or 1 in 30 thank you in advance for any answers

You've probably already found this doc but if not here's a link to the manual that came with the 2016 loco - lgb-2046-user-guide.pdf

As well as covering operation and maintenance there is a piece on rack construction and operation (however, what it says appears to have been covered already by previous posters to this thread)

Apologies - I missed the date on some of the earlier posts so mine is irrelevant. :(
