UP does it over Tehachapi, the algo will give you 12-13 mph with good power, any faster is dumb luck. Grade has a TPA or HPT requirement and if that's the ruling grade you determine how fast you want to go and do the math. All great until, hot weather, rain, snow or normal diesel maintenance get in the way, call the Responder!
