Rules listed there:

  • Rule 1: The steepest slope should change the height by no more that 2 plates per piece of track.
  • Rule 2: The angle of the incline should change by no more that 1 plate per piece of track.
  • Rule 3: Don’t have points at an inclined angle, they need to be flat.
  • Rule 4: There should be at least one length of level straight track between any point and any inclined piece of track.

The exact brick count is as follows, where x.y means x bricks and y plates.
