    I want this too. I have a large minecart run in build I would like to take through a portal into the nether to continue it and back. Would be amazing. Make it happen!!!

     I Agree DESTR0YER13 nh having this would be extremely helpful, minecarts are one of the fastest way of travelling. But, one big reason why going through the nether and keeping momentum is that you cannot place rails in the portal. So the game thinks the minecart has gone ‘off rail’. So to make it work you will need to be able to place rail IN the portal.

    I would love for this to happen. If this happened, I could make a roller coaster in Minecraft that goes like this: It starts out in the Overworld, but after a little while it goes into a Nether Portal while maintaining its velocity and position. Right now, if you were to try to do this, you would have to eject right before hitting the portal blocks and then get back in the cart once you're in the Nether.

    A Hando, you wouldn't have to place rails in the portal because you would just have to place powered rails going right into the portal. This will get it close enough for the teleportation to happen.

    I’m currently making a rollercoaster and I want it to go through the nether without having to get out of the Minecraft then going into the portal to then start the portal again this would be really helpful and I think that it should be added

    This would be a very useful addition to Minecraft however I would add that if it were possible to ride in a minecart through a nether portal then the player should be capable of going through a nether portal whilst mounted on any mount such as horses and boats.

    I agree! I also would like to point out, for Java 1.16.2 PR 2 the banner on the website ( https://www.minecraft.net/en-us/article/minecraft-1-16-2-pre-release-2 ) shows a pig, in a minecart, going through a portal INTO the nether.

     

    This has always been a pet peeve of mine, the Minecraft marketing/pictures FROM Mojang/Microsoft never line up with the game. The aesthetics of the textures in trailers, the clear disconnect between all things minecraft(give us rare mobs you cowards, why should World get muddy pigs but not us?) It's kind of a little frustrating.

    Rails can be waterlogged in Bedrock and will be able to be waterlogged in Java in 1.17...

    What if it were possible to have portal-logged rails? Rails being able to go through Nether and End portal panes would be awesome and so useful!

    It doesn't make a whole lot of sense that entities can traverse portals alone but entities with riders cannot.

    To those saying the need for rails to go through a portal, this isn't necessarily the case. You can already send empty (without passenger) minecarts through portals so long as the rails line up on the nether side with the overworld side. There's no need to make it complex with rails going "in" the portal. 

    This would be HUGELY beneficial to mob farms, redstone machines, player travel, and mob transportation to be able to transport minecarts, boats, etc with passengers through portals. I'd really like to see this.

    Shulkers for instance can go through end gateways in a minecart already so the ability is there.

    Also nice catch on the 1.16.2 pre-release image! The flipping picture shows the possibility! 😂 Make it reality Mojang!

    I think the reason they didn't implement this was, that the player than gets send immediately and that could be weird. However I still think this is a good idea.
