We will no longer continue development of our plugins

We would like to thanx everyone for the support!

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

Version: 1.01

Bukkit: 1.7.2 R0.3 (requires TrainCarts v1.54+)


The Hang Rail add-on was a TrainCarts request that I liked as well. However, it was a bit too 'different' to just put it in Train Carts (causing everyone that used iron bars as visual styling to get bugs). For that reason, you can install this add-on next to TrainCarts to add minecarts suspended on iron bars.

Other than that the rail is now not below the minecart but above it, there is no change in minecart movement physics. You can make turns, go up and down and can even make X-crossings and T-splits. Everything blends in with other rail types by utilizing the (new) TrainCarts rail API.


Install TrainCarts and then add the jar file of this add-on to the plugins folder as well. It will automatically register the new available rail type.


By placing iron bars in a horizontal line you can create tracks. To get a minecart on these tracks, place a normal track leading to it 2 blocks below it. When the minecart leaves the tracks it goes onto the hang rail and stays there. There are no commands or permissions you have to set up: just place the rails and you're done.

TrainCarts signs can be placed on top of the rail, that is, place a block (such as stone, grass, wood, etc.) on top of the rail and attach signs to it. All signs, including stations, spawners, etc, function. Path finding also supports hangrails.

How to show that suspension block above?

You can change the block displayed in the Minecart to be this block. In this case, use the two commands:

/train setblock cobblewall
/train blockoffset 48

Similarly, with a blockchanger sign:

blockchanger 48


Stations and sign usage

Horizontal line with some curves


X-crossing (8-track)

    Is there another plugin like this that doesn't require iron bars and is possible to do loops and go up ladders and such, please reply as I'm itching to finish my Nemesis on my server!

    Can you make it so when a minecart goes over a sertain type of block it floats above it(The reverse of what hangrail is doing) So that the blocks could be underground and the minecart would float above the surface a certain count of blocks?

    Oh! I was thinking that was an option to use a block other than iron bars for the carts to travel under. I wanted to use String (for tripwires) as a guide for the minecarts.

    There's no reason why this version for 1.6.2 won't work

    I've been running it for several months, it works fine with 1.7.2

    How can I make a track like this work? Surely this plugin supports drops that are greater than 1 block?
