View down the inclineThe Lickey Incline, south of Birmingham, is the steepest sustained main-line railway incline in Great Britain. The climb is a gradient of 1-in-37.7 (2.65%) for a continuous distance of two miles (3.2 km).  To assist trains up the incline and in some cases to give more braking, particularly to unfitted freights, specialised banking engines were kept at Bromsgrove shed at the foot of the incline.,17
