Natural generation[edit | edit source]

Minecarts with chests naturally generate in abandoned mineshafts.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Minecarts with chests can be placed by using its item on a rail.

Chest minecart's contents can be accessed by pressing Use Item button on them. The interaction makes no sounds and the chest does not show the opening or closing animation, unlike regular chests.

The boost that minecarts with chests gain from powered rails is dependent on their load. For example, from a 1 powered rail starter track, an empty minecart with chest will go 64 blocks, but a full minecart with chest will go only 16 blocks (opposed to 8 blocks for an empty normal minecart and 80 blocks for an occupied normal minecart).

Another physical property of chest minecarts is their ability to be stacked. Whereas only 3 chests can fit in an area 3 blocks tall, up to 4 chest minecarts can fit in the same area.
