Minecraft (Pocket Edition)
Rail can either be obtained through crafting, or it can be found in Abandoned Mines.
Usage / Purpose
Rail is used as a quick means of transport. It can be placed on flat ground, along a slope of blocks on an angle, or can twist and turn between connecting sections of Rail. The only way to ride the rails is through the use of a Minecart.
Rail can be connected with sections of Powered Rail to create an automatic system where you don't have to press on the screen to move forward. When building a railway, if you place one section of Powered Rail approximately every 20 rails it will boost you along if you are riding in a Minecart.
Drops / Yields
If you break a section of rail it will produce on section of Rail to pick up.
Rail is stored in stacks of up to 64 units.
Abandoned Mines are a great way to collect a large amount of Rail without having to use resources. The quickest means to gather the Rail is to use a Water Bucket. Pour the water on the Rail and then scoop the water back up by tapping on it. All the Rails will float off the ground for quick retrieval.
