So let's start with the resources you will need to collect for the railroad and the train itself:

  • 2 Dynamic Foundations
  • 2 Activation Switches
  • 4 Large Thrusters
    • Their number and size can vary depending on the desired train speed.
  • 8 Small Wheels
  • Woods
    • The number depends on how long the railroad will be and how high you raise the platform.

Now let's move on to the construction process:

How to Build Rails

The movement of the train should not be obstructed by high mountains, trees, etc. Therefore, you need to build it high enough. To accomplish this, use any stairs to get up. You can use the high rocks in the sand biome to save some resources, but the main thing is to make it easy to climb. When you have built the stairs high enough, use the foundations or the floor to make a small platform from where you will start building the railroad. You can put chests, cabinets, or other storage there to conveniently accumulate the resources you have mined.

Next, from your platform, build a line from any thin floor to where you want to run the railroad. It is important to do this so that the line from the floor is as flat as possible and does not protrude even by one pixel.

The next step is to build the same station as you did at the beginning of the railroad, but this time build it at the end. Again, make it so that it will be convenient to use in the future. In this process, you can use your imagination as much as possible and get creative.

  • Place 2 Dynamic Foundations clearly in the middle of the thin floor. It is essential to do this so that they do not touch each other.
  • Then place 4 Small Wheels on the bottom of each Dynamic Foundation. The wheels should be placed on each corner of the Dynamic Foundation so that they touch the thin floor and prevent the train from moving off.
  • Next, place 2 Large Thrusters on one side of the Dynamic Foundation so that it moves forward on the railroad track. Place 2 more Large Thrusters on the other Dynamic Foundation, but on the opposite side.
  • All that's left to do is place an Activation Switch on each Dynamic Foundation, step on the train, and press the lever.

Personal tip: if you need to transfer resources, you can put several chests on the train itself.
