Everything you need to craft a Detector Rail in Minecraft

A Detector Rail in Minecraft is used as a switchable Redstone power source. It is similar to a standard rail that transports Minecarts in the game. These are special types of rails that can detect whether or not a Minecart is on it and how full the containers in it are.

Here are the items you’ll need to craft a Detector Rail:

How to craft a Detector Rail in Minecraft

#1 Crafting Iron Ingots

Iron is an ore that is used extensively in Minecraft recipes. To acquire Iron, you can head down to the caves and mine some Iron Ore. Then smelt that iron ore using a furnace to get Iron Ingots. You can also get Iron Ingots from Iron blocks and Iron Nuggets. Killing an Iron Golem can also give Iron Ingots.

#2 Acquiring Redstone Dust

Redstone dust is readily available once you mine the Redstone ore in the caves. Breaking a Redstone ore will give you Redstone dust.

#3 Crafting Stone Pressure Plate 

A Stone pressure plate sends a Redstone signal when you stand on it. You can craft one using two stone blocks.

#4 Crafting Detector Rail

Once you get a hold of all the items mentioned in the recipe, simply follow the recipe shown here to craft your very own detector rail.

These are used in many Redstone contraptions in Minecraft.
