Detector Rail is a block added by Minecraft. It functions like a normal Rail, but will power nearby redstone, when a Minecart passes over it. If a Redstone Comparator is placed next to it, the strength of the redstone signal emitted depends on the charge of the Minecart's storage (e.g. how many stacks are filled in a Minecart with Chest): The more items it contains, the further the redstone signal will reach.
