I have the Rail King LoVs and the same problem. The grades on my El are significant (5 to 6%), and the LoV train had to be shortened to 4 cars, that is until I found a simple solution.

The track on my El is MTH Real Trax with solid rails. Using a flat stone at 90 degrees to the rails, I made score marks in the rails. Now the LoVs run up the grades without slipping and stalling.

Also be sure that the traction tires are not spinning on the wheels.Traction TipEl IRT LoV [1) 505kbDSCN2434
