Minecraft has a lot of blocks, but what if they had more? Why do we need them? Please don't just add lists of things! Also, no furniture, guns, or vertical/"sideways" slabs.

    Yes. Simply being able to daisy-chain multiple chest carts together, and either manually drive them, or send them off via engine, to be sorted and stored at the front/top of the line, is EXACTLY what we should be making happen. 

    Item elevators and hopper lines are neat, sure, but it doesn't feel like "mining." It costs so much iron to make a good rail system, which are slow and inefficient in terms of automation, that it's never worth it.

    The game's namesake should be a more integral part of the gameplay.

    I totally agree with all of you on this. It would be nice having better furnaces in the mine carts. To make them more like real steam engines.

    I hope we get something like this in the future. I REALLY hope they don't make them as incompetent as the old furnace minecarts, though.

    Here's my suggestions for carts:

    Make them faster. A cart should be faster than a horse.
    Fix the furnace cart. It's too slow and awkward to use right now.
    Add the ability to link carts together.

    Those 3 additions would vastly improve rails and carts, and hopefully lead to a lot of creative rail networks in players' worlds.

    You've got a lot of details here, but put simply let's say:  Let us link carts together, and give us a coal powered engine ;)  That would be awesome :D
