How to Make a Rail in Minecraft

Rails are an interesting way to navigate the world of Minecraft. They are fast, effective and most importantly fun to build and ride. They also deliver this satisfaction when you complete a railway system from one place to another. 

One of the most fun ways rails are used is to make roller coasters with them. Gamers can make these roller coasters really detailed and even add carefully calculated gaps for the cart to jump across.

Creating a rail

First, you have to gather all the ingredients required to create a rail

Here are the ingredients you need:

  • 6 Iron ingots
  • 1 Stick
  • Now we will begin crafting the rail. Once you have all the ingredients you need you can move forward to craft the rail. To begin crafting, you will need a 3×3 grid which can only be accessed through a crating table. Move close to the crafting table and open the 3×3 grid. Place all the six ingots and the single stick in the grid. 
    It’s important to follow the exact pattern in order to create a rail. You will need to place the stick in the center of the 3×3 grid and then fill all the other boxes with the 6 iron ingots.
  • When you are done, you will be left with 16 rails from these ingredients. Drag the rail from the box and to your inventory.
