First, you’ll need the necessary tools to craft rails. You will need to have a crafting table to give you access to a 3×3 grid. If you have not yet upgrading your 2×2 crafting grid, put four wooden planks in your grid to create a crafting table.

Next, you will have to acquire six iron ingots and one stick. To craft an iron ingot, you will have to put a piece of iron ore into a furnace. Put the iron ore into the top slot of your furnace and fuel into your bottom slot. To make a stick, simply put two wood planks into your 3×3 crafting table. Once you have all the required materials, place them into your 3×3 grid in the following order:
