Railcraft started off as a simple minecart mod, but it has since become much more than that.

It features a fully fleshed out tech tree, with great effort gone into providing a balanced gameplay.

Railcraft was also one of the pioneer mods when it comes to Multi-Block structures. It features a whole slew of these structures, including the mighty Steam Boiler and the stunningly massive Iron Tanks.
