English term or phrase: ruling down-gradient
An important design variable is the ruling down-gradient: this is the maximum gradient for a given locomotive,
a given train weight,and a given speed.The choice of this gradient will compromise between investment costs and operational costs. One should realise that locomotives are not only meant for the difficult piece of alignment using a ruling down-gradient. On the rest of the line the power should also be utilised (in terms of speed); othervise the rest power is unused and hence less profitable.

nisam sigurna za ovaj ruling, ali možda bi se moglo jednostavno iz konteksta prevesti maksimalni nagib trase
