Hello there,

Nice of you that you are interested in this pearl among the redstone powered machines! There are a lot of similar project but most of them are very simple or do not support the feaures I needed.

In my own survival world I have a lot of places where I built something and I wanted to connect them by rail and minecarts. The problem was that at my hub there were too many different rails coming from every direction. So I tried to build a railwaystation on my own. It seemed to work until I realised I had to place, remove and switch rails all by my own hand which is very time consuming!

After lots of YouTube-tutorials and failed attempts, I built a fully automatic redstone powered railwaystation to make it easy to go anywhere while you are playing with friends.

Over time this railwaystation has been improved a lot! A new interior design, improved redstone, new redstone tricks to serve a lot of people simultaneously and bugfixes in the system. This railwaystation is FULLY AUTOMATIC and you only have to push some buttons to choose your destination where you want to go to, yes it is that easy!

  1. Automatic redstone powered piston door on top of the station which serves as the main entrance. You can use this entrance in your world to know where to enter the station. This build was meant to be underground.
  2. One and the same room for Departures and Arrivals so players leave and arrive within the same hub.
  3. You are able to go up to 15 destinations when the rails are connected by your rails!
  4. Minecart storage silo to save minecarts when people arrive at the station and want to leave. The Minecarts are to be recycled in the system. This way, lots of people can make use of the station at the same time while having not too many Minecarts.
  5. Minecart silo storage loader to fill the silo in case Minecarts are depleted.
  6. Player tracker system when you departure to secure the Minecarts in case the player jumps out the minecart while travelling inside the station. This way there will be no empty Minecarts on the rails.
  7. Player buffers (waiting area) at arrival when people have to wait to till they are allowed to leave the station. This is only the case when someone needs to get out of his Minecart and people are arriving at the station.
  8. Error overflow. This means if something is wrong in the station all the Minecarts with players go to the emergency room so they do not jump out earlier and destroy everything. This way players are also safe to leave the station instead of being stuck all the time.
  9. If there are too many minecarts, some of them go to a lava bin to destroy them.
  10. Second entrance for engineers to access the redstone of the station.. Normal players cannot access this since it is protected by a password on a paper.
  11. Players cant get to redstone. All redstone systems are protected by walls surrounding them.
  12. Minecart recycle. When players arrive their Minecart will be stored in the silo.
  13. Minecart buffer for faster departure. When players push the button, almost instant a Minecart will appear.

These features require lots of redstone so this station is quite large, however, very compactly built. Hopefully this station will be of use to you. If there are problems or bugs you may report them in the comments below.

Have fun,
Progress100% complete
