Gradient: In railway technology, the inclination of a slope is not measured in degrees but in metres per kilometre. This means the height difference in 0/00 of horizontal distance. For example: if a point is located 100m higher at a distance of 1 kilometre the gradient is 100 0/00. The Brienz Rothorn Railway has an average gradient of 225 0/00 and a maximum gradient of 250 0/00. Comparable to 1 in 4 or 25% in road terminology. The way the BRB masters this challenge is by employing the Abt dual rack and pinion system.
