How do I use rails and minecarts in Minecraft?
All of your rail-magnate ambitions can come true in Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta, but everyone has to start somewhere. Learn the basics of building a railway with our handy guide to rails and minecarts.
Types of rails
This plain rail is the one you’ll be using most. It can be placed on flat ground or on slopes. Six iron ingots and one stick produce 16 rails.
The powered rail, when attached to redstone, moves your minecart along the rail. If the powered rail isn’t connected to redstone, it will stop your cart. Six gold ingots, one stick, and one redstone dust produces six powered rails.
