A cart on a rail

Carts can be used for quick transport of yourself and items on rails. Carts only ride on rails and always follow the tracks. At a T-junction with no straight way ahead, the cart normally turns left. There are multiple rail types which affect the cart speed.


You can only place the cart on rails. Right-click it to enter it. Punch the cart to get it moving. When you sit inside, you can control the cart:

  • Hold Down to slow down
  • Hold down Left or Right to turn the cart at crossings and T-junctions.

To transport item stacks, just drop them inside and punch the cart. To obtain the cart and the items, punch it while holding down the sneak key.
