      The "La Mesa Model railroad club" (which operates HO
      scale Tehachapi Pass in San Diego, CA) says, for its
      maximum grades of 2.2 %, 8 towed axles (ie two cars)
      per driving axle. That leads to 8 cars per BB engine,
      and 12 cars per CC engine.
      Cheers,
      Dominique
