Re: TAN: Tram and light rail gradients in Sydney.
  John Wayman


the steepest gradient on the Melbourne tram network is at Sussex Street stop in Surrey Hills on Riversdale Road on the Wattle Park line. It is closer to 1 in 8 (the gradient of the pedestrian ramps at Flinders Street Station). Other slopes on Riversdale Road also are steeper than 1 in 12. This is why the M&MTB used this line for driver training.

Cheers John Wayman.
