Previously-placed controller rails can be broken with bare hands or any tool, dropping themselves as items.

Controller Rail6


When a Redstone signal is applied, the rail will move carts depending on the strength of the signal. An Analog Lever is helpful for this.

A Controller Rail will propagate it's signal to other connected Controller Rails up to 8 blocks away.

Powering two rails with different strengths will cause rails between them to interpolate the signal.
