I propose the addition of 'sticky' minecarts to minecraft. This would allow for minecarts to stick to eachother, creating chains of multiple minecart.
I suggest that a sticky minecart can be obtained through crafting.
A player could craft a sticky minecart by simply adding two slime balls on either side of any minecart variant, in turn creating a sticky minecart; sticky minecart with chest; sticky minecart with hopper; etc.
In addition to turning a minecart into a sticky minecart, a sticky minecart can be combined with the crafting materials currently used to make minecart variants in order to turn a sticky minecart into a sticky minecart with chest; sticky minecart with hopper; etc.
I propose that when a sticky minecart comes into contact with any other minecart, stick or not, the two minecarts will stick together, creating a chain of minecarts. The entire train of sticky minecarts will maintain the same speed and direction. This behavior will be maintained as long as the minecarts can reach eachother by being connected through a continious track, for example, when a long chain of minecarts rides over a section of track which is turned by a redstone signal, the chain of minecarts will break, resulting in two chains of minecarts going on opposite directions.
