Railcraft Mod enhances the rail system in Minecraft. It takes it from a few simple tracks to a full blown railway by adding more tracks, carts and even a train engine. You can now do pretty much anything you can imagine with rails and if you like building trains and coasters in Minecraft, you’ll love this mod.
There are a few higher speed tracks that give you a significant boost over traditional tracks. The High Speed Track is unpowered at 2.5x standard and the High Speed booster track significantly boosts the cart speed to 125%, which can be very dangerous. And the Launch Track is more fun than practical as it will launch your cart into the air. It’s great for jumps or if you want to make a creative entrance to your home.
There’s a great new Reinforced Track, which is both faster and nearly indestructible. It’ll help to ensure that your track will remain intact and won’t be susceptible to creeper blasts or damage from Ghasts in the Nether.
The elevator track allows you to place tracks vertically and will lift or lower an attached minecart. This is a fantastic new system for creating an elevator rather than using a clever hack with ladders or water. It’s great for loot delivery as well and also functions as a regular ladder you can climb.
