Auto Minecart Station

Thought I’d just make a quick post showing what I’m working on at the moment in Minecraft – an Automatic Minecart Station. What it basicly does is, when you stand on the first pressure plate a cart is sent up and sits on the second plate. Then when you enter the minecart the second pressure plate activates and sends a booster cart to send you on your way. There is also a hole where you push the minecart back into the system.

Here are some pics:

The track on the left is meant to go to somewhere, but I was building this on a flatgrass world I made.

Standing on the plate in the picture above sends the main cart onto the platform.

Then sitting in the cart sends the booster on the other track.

Auto Minecart Station - Return Chute

This is where the cart returns into the station, you then push the cart down the chute and back into the system.

Auto Minecart Station - Booster Cart

This is where all the carts are eternaly boosted around until they as sent back above ground when the pressure plates are activated.

If anybody wants me to make a more in-depth look/tutorial above the mechanism please leave a comment and I will see what I can do.

    Nice setup!

    Looks like it fits into a fairly small footprint as well, which is nice for a mine cart station.

      Yh, having it small was one of the things I was aiming for. I’ve been working on it for the last couple of days and have made it even more compact. I’ve also made a junction for the two tracks with involves a lot of crossing tracks. I’ll post some more pics when I get the chance.
