The activator rail is a type of rail that ejects the player from a minecart and activates TNT minecarts.


The activator rail can be broken instantly by hand.

It drops as an item if there is no block beneath it to support it.


Activator rails are crafted using six iron ingots, a redstone torch, and a stick.

If there is no block beneath the activator rail, it will break and drop as an item. If there is any type of rail one block towards either side and one block up, it will change its texture to appear connected to that rail. It allows entities and the player to walk through it, very much like a crafting table. However, minecart float slightly above the rail.

Redstone Power

If powered by redstone current, it will light up. When it is on it will show qualities different to that of a regular minecart rail.


When powered with a redstone signal, the activator rail will eject the player from a minecart.

TNT Minecart

A TNT minecart placed on a powered activator rail will explode.
