The game apparently uses fairly real railway physics to make the trains roll, so to the only way to answer your question is to use railway physics.

However, a reasonable quick and dirty approximation for the total mass of a given train could be:

m = P / ( 0.2 * vmax)

Where m is total train mass, P the power of the loc and vmax the maximum speed of the loc (or a maximum speed that you find acceptable :).

This should give a train with sufficient oomph to maintain full speed on a 1 degree slope. For hilly tracks, use less carriages. For really smooth tracks, you could add more, but keep in mind the time it will take to reach maximum speed will also increase.
