Railcraft is a mod created by CovertJaguar that primarily expands upon existing Minecart functionality, including new tracks, new carts, a signaling system, and the ability to link carts to one another. As well as advanced Minecart and rail systems, Railcraft adds unique ways of item transportation, liquid storage, and item-based redstone logic.

It also has a very extensive set of decorative blocks, such as Quarried, Abyssal, Blood Stained, Frost Bound, Sandy, Infernal, Bleached Bone, and Nether. As well as these new block sets, it also adds new variations of the existing block sets, such as Slabs, Walls, and Stairs.


Railcraft: Reborn[]

Railcraft: Reborn is a community-driven rewrite and port of the original Railcraft mod.

It is largely identical to the original mod, having a similar modules system and having near-identical items.[note 1] The fork is authorized by CovertJaguar.[1]


Railcraft is split into various different sections, called Modules. These modules are used for disabling/enabling certain parts of this mod. They can be toggled in the /minecraft/config/railcraft/modules.cfg configuration file by setting them to either true or false. There are 25 modules currently present in Railcraft:
