    That loaded petroleum train is a very heavy train (by European standards): 1900 tons. That's a lot for a single loco to lug up a 1% grade. If you spend any time on Sand Patch or Clinchfield you'll get a taste of how much speed reduction can be involved with some of the monster freights that run in the US.
