Rack Rail - 20%+ climbing

Post by avdgeijn » Wed 22. Jun 2016, 17:29

I would like to add rack rail to my layout with a climbing percentage of about 20-25%, but the tools doesn't allow me to make those steep percentages. Anybody an idea how to make that happen?

Regards,

Andre

Hello Andre,

the grade is limited to 100‰ (= 100/1000) or 10%.

Thanks,
Jan

Hi Jan,

Thanks for your feedback.

Would it not be better to have an option where the user can set this limit, actually two limits. The first one that is a hard limit, so you are not allowed to go over it, the second one is a 'warning' limit, when you go over it, it will be drawn, for example for rack rail that goes 20% up.

Will also put this as an enhancement request for the tool.

Regards,

Andre
