I have a simple incline track that I use to test cars and locomotives

recommend that your cars roll down inclines of 1% while they should
roll on inclines of less than .2%. Fiddle with these as needed. If
cars are too free-wheeling they will have trouble coupling. This is
rarely an issue.

Really free rolling trucks will be sure to find any less than perfectly
level track.

I experienced the coupling difficulty back when I used a transistor
