We will no longer continue development of our plugins

We would like to thanx everyone for the support!

Edit: Support will continue until versions for Sponge are released.

Development builds are no longer available after 15-10-2014 00:00

Plugin: TrainCarts - Linked Minecarts, sign-redstone systems, easy to use and realistic

Version: v1.73.0

Build: 1.7.2 R0.1/R0.2

Incompatible with: RailCraft


This plugin looks for suitable Minecarts and links them together if possible. When two Minecarts are being "linked", the Minecarts will act as one single moving train.

Once carts are successfully linked, an effect is played and their velocity is shared in combination with an individual factor for each Minecart, which is used to remain a steady gap between carts. This gap is adjustable, the force at which this happens as well.

End result: a train! You can move it, make a roller-coaster out of it, split it in half, watch trains collide, whatever you want to do with trains. :)

As for 1.21, it is also possible to safely exit your train by setting an exit offset with a (sideways) push factor for the train. This feature is disabled by default. (only affects dropped items). If you want to display arrival times on signs (see redstone circuit part) you need SignLink, see the downloads on the bottom of the page.

As for 1.35 you can set train properties to make 'special' trains, or to 'finalize' a train

For configuration, permissions and how-to's, see the Wikipedia page (it is rather long):

Note that I would prefer having comments, bug reports and others in the main Bukkit page, since I visit that site the most. :)


Special Addons for TrainCarts


  • Link minecarts using collision: no commands needed to make a train
  • Move trains as easily as you would with single Minecarts
  • Store trains to file for persistence during reloads and server restarts
  • Use sign-redstone circuits for subway systems, complete railroads and much more
    • Station to gracefully stop and launch trains
    • Spawn
    • Teleport
    • Property setters
    • Tag systems to switch certain tracks based on tags on the train
    • Destination systems to make your train travel to far-away lands all on it's own
  • Supports Minecart Mania's features
  • Infinite minecart speeds are possible
  • Push-away: Push mobs, players and items away from your trains to keep them running
  • Everything is configurable, if something proves not to be, I will make it that way


When players are near, trains reach their destinations. With no one near, they don't. What do I do?

By default trains do not keep chunks loaded, and they will unload once they move into unloaded chunks. To make trains keep the chunk area (and themselves) around them loaded, set the 'keepchunksloaded' property to True. This can be done using the /train keepchunksloaded true command, using a property sign or by changing it to true in the DefaultTrainProperties.yml file. For more information about train properties, see here.

Why not boats?!?!


If you have another plugin that performs similar Minecart replacement techniques, it is likely that TrainCarts will not function or function poorly. For the 'chunk persistence' part of this plugin, other plugins that unload chunks without firing events result in this feature failing. Minebackup is known for having this problem.


This plugin sends server count statistics to You can (globally) opt out in the PluginMetrics/config.yml file.

    @lenis0012: Go

    Is there anyway in the near future that traincarts could work for spigot 1.8? or just make it so 1.8 users can join. Thefuture of my server depends on it! If this is going to be inactive and forgotten can i take control of it? I just need updated versions. Also How new is sponge current day i cant seem to find too much info on sponge. Thank you for the support!

    Is there any way to stop all my trains in the world loading on the start of the server as my restart takes 30-40 minutes just for train carts and we have a mcpro account which has amazing ram etc

    Just throwing in my 2 cents, but I think that you should continue the plugin, for us running spigot.

    Looks like TrainCarts 1.73.0 works fine with BKC 1.59 on MC 1.7.10
