The Detector Rail is an item which can carry minecarts.
The detector rail is similar in function to both a standard Rail and a pressure plate. When a Minecart passes over it, it will output an analogue redstone signal. This signal can be used like any other redstone signal; it can operate pistons, and also power Powered Rail. It will also ignite the TNT in a TNT Minecart.
