The train spawner sign allows you to spawn complete trains. Trains are spawned to the text-side of the sign on the rails above. When it receives power while it was unpowered before, it will trace down the tracks and spawn a train on it if there are no other trains occupying the rails.

Third and fourth lines[edit]

The minecart types to spawn, using characters shown below. The resulting train will be spawned with the same types in the same order as set on the sign. To spawn many carts at once, this way spawning more than 30 Minecarts, define the number of times to spawn in front of the character. For example, 30s60m spawns a train with 30 storage minecarts and 60 regular minecarts.

Text Minecart type
m Regular Minecart
p Powered Minecart
s Storage Minecart
t TNT Minecart
h Hopper minecart
e Minecart with Spawner

Automated spawning[edit]

As of v1.69 it is possible to spawn trains at a set interval:

spawn 1:20 0.5

Will spawn 3 minecarts every 1 minute and 20 seconds at a velocity of 0.5 blocks/tick. The interval time has to be set after spawn and before the launching velocity. The automatic spawner will load a 7x7 chunk area around the sign, and spawn a minecart. Try not to set the interval too low as that may cause issues when the chunks around the signs unload a lot.
