First Appearance

Update 0.8.0

Rails are Blocks that were added in Update 0.8.0.

Obtaining

The main way to obtain these is by Crafting them. They can also be found naturally in Abandoned Mineshafts.

Crafting

Usage

Rails can be placed down like any normal block or Item, and when a Minecart is placed down on a Rail, the Player can ride in it. While being placed, the Player should note it will appear facing them, vertically. If a horizontally-placed Rail and a vertically-placed Rail are beside each other, they will form either a right-turning or left-turning Rail. They are used to carry Minecarts.

Trivia

  • Rails may be found in large quantities inside Abandoned Mineshafts and Mesa Mineshafts.
  • Like Flowers and other vegetation, a Rail will be destroyed if the block below it is broken.
  • Using a Lever, or any Redstone item on a T-shaped rail track will cause the curving Rail to switch.
  • Rails can be pushed by Pistons.
  • Rails actually float above the Block underneath them, as shown in the picture.
