Re: Tram and light rail gradients in Sydney.

Wouldn’t Darling Street (Balmain) have been the steepest?

Doubtless discussed previously, but what were the steepest adhesion-only grades on the former Sydney tramway network and what are the steepest encountered by the current Sydney light rail lines?   My old Tramway Gradient Diagrams book on p.22 gives the grades to and from the Central Colonnade as 1:15.61 and 1:18.48 which would still be in use by the L1 Dulwich Hill route, but in the opposing direction to the older Pitt & Castlereagh Streets trams.
