    Rails can already go for extremely long distances and a storage cart is a chest in minecart in Minecraft plus chests that are in minecarts can carry more then even 18 stacks of wood. Chests in minecarts can carry any item or block in game then just wood too.

    Why would we need a bed in a minecart?

    I like this idea but it'll be very complicated due to the game having to constantly update the location and rotation of each block placed on the train

    now that we have trains, can we have modular boats, hot air balloons, and flintlocks?

    I agree. Tekkit was a mod for minecraft that really made the game going back in the days. If Minecraft want's to evolve, it needs to start adding higher technologies

    It would be a cool idea, like we already have done this with Immersive railroading and traincraft… but those aren't on 1.14, so i like the idea

    I don't know about all that stuff, but it would be really simple to allow us to link carts together, and have a coal powered engine. That would be awesome :D

    Dear Aaron Penrose, Would you mind if i shared your idea and referenced you in a YouTube video i have in mind of doing. I love the idea of trians in Minecraft. I believe minecraft is only limited to the players imagination. ..that and the whims of the mf voters. Lets make this happen. Sincerely, Lite

    I want to have a train on my realm to travel fast between my cities. Minecart is fine but sometimes it takes too long to drive from one place to another. Maybe some option to combine few carts to obtain a cart for more than one player, and faster than normal :)

    Yes, @Lightbulb Builds you may use this idea for sure! Sorry for the late response, I have this account linked to my old email

    I love this idea...recently commented on another similar post about rail tracks...specifically being able to intersect tracks with crossing tracks and switch tracks (tracks that intersect, and the player has the ability to decide which track joins to which track via a lever of red-stone mechanism).

    Being able to build working railroads would be awesome for moving large quantities of materials from one work-site to another (which is something I often need to do).

    Having train engines, that is coal-powered mine-carts would be an added bonus, because it would no longer require powered rail to move the cart (engine). The engine would burn coal, or wood.

    For me, a simple train would do; whereby the train option would be comprised of a steam engine that can be created separate of the coal car and a caboose. Say, for instance, building the caboose and connecting it to the end of an engine, coal cart, at least one mine cart, activates the trains ability to move forward. Building a coal cart and connecting it to the engine allows the engine only to move forward. Train connected mine carts would continue to hold the same capacities of loads that are current with today's mod.

    Provide the option to build simple control panels that allow for switches to function without supervision or proximity handling by character location.

    Have always wanted more trains in Minecraft. We've got everything else being evolved and expanded (i.e Animals, buildings, biomes) but the minecarts and railroad items are still the same as they have been for.... always? The trains & Zeppelin mod started something cool, and that was continued with the Immersive Railroading and Traincraft mods too. Though, why is it so hard to have a simple steam locomotive, tender, and assorted freight and passenger cars to help expand? And the switches/curves of current tracks are so small. If a painting can be designed to cover a 3x3 or 2x3 or 2x2 (etc) space, is it much harder to design track pieces that do the same?

    Make different types of engines and u can hook up different cars

    I think trains are a great idea but i was also thinking it could be a simple steam engine but crafted like this:

    ii = Iron ingot, sl = wood slab, fu = furnace, ws = wood stair, and E = empty

    sl  E   ii

    fu  sl  sl

    ii   ii   ws

    it would be called the "western train" and for traincars a "linked minecart" crafted like this:

    ch = chain, mi = minecart

     E   E    E 

    ch  mi  ch

     E   E    E

    but altogether great idea!

    Have 1 block high 1 block wide 2 blocks long sized copper steam train powered by coal/charcoal by placing it in the furnace like how you use the horse inventory you could link mine carts to the train making a useful transport vehicle it could be created by using 4 copper campfire and blast or normal furnace I think it would be handy in survival and look cool in creative and it would make railroad travel a lot more fun
