Powered rails can be used with redstone to increase the speed of minecarts passing over it. Turn it off to slow down minecarts to a halt.
To make Powered Rail, you will need Wood Log, Gold Ore, Redstone, Gold Ingot using Furnace, Wood Planks and Wood Sticks. Please follow the following steps to make a Powered Rail.
In order to make a powered rail, the basic item you will need to get is any kind of wood log. Go towards the forest and chop down any of the trees using your iron axe to get a wood log.
The next required item that you need to find is gold ore. Equip your stone pickaxe and get at least six gold ore blocks. You will find some under the ground.
After that, the next required item is redstone. You will have to find and get a Redstone. Use any of the pickaxes to get one red stone.
Gold Ingot using Furnace
Now you need to use the furnace to get gold ingots as you have gold ores in stock. Go towards the furnace to add coal and gold ore blocks in it. Add six gold ore blocks in the upper box and coal in the lower box to get gold ingots in the right-side box of the furnace. Bring these gold ingots in your “ready to use” stock.
After that, you need to make wooden planks from a wood block that you have collected. Move to the crafting table just next to the furnace and add wood block in any cell of 3*3 crafting grid to get wooden planks in the right-side box of the crafting table.
One wood block will convert into 4 wooden planks. Bring these wooden planks in your inventory.
And then you need to craft sticks from wooden planks. Add two wood planks in 3*3 crafting grid as shown in the image below and you will get wood sticks in the right-side box of the crafting table. Two wooden planks will give you four sticks. Add them in your inventory to use later.
Use the crafting table once more to craft a powered rail. Add six gold ingots, one redstone and one wood stick in the same way as shown in the image below. You will get a powered rail in the right side box of the crafting table. Add this item in your “ready to use” stock.
