I've been running a rake of ten coaches behind a baby GM last night so I can't imagine that the loco would have issues climbing on a gentle slope like shown. No experience of transition onto grades but planning some so have been thinking about this. Test your longest rake on the grade before you even consider the transition remembering tighter curves increase the effective grade on the track

A number of shorter tracks with joiners at the transition point would probably allow some flexibility in the vertical plane as long the angular increase at any individual join is small
