The Railcraft Mod for Minecraft, source and development.
Here you will find the source and issue tracker for the Official Railcraft Project.
It greatly expands and improves the Minecart system in Minecraft. Adding many new blocks, entities, and features. It has been in development since 2012 and contains over 800 class files and hundreds of thousands of lines of code.
The mod was created and is still currently maintained by the user going by the name CovertJaguar.
In the words of CovertJaguar:
As a new modder, I originally feared losing control of my code, my brainchild. However, since that time, I have had the privelege of being Project Lead on two other major Minecraft Mod projects that provided access to the source: Buildcraft and Forestry. I've generally found this to be a positive experience resulting in many bug fixes and increased intermod compatibility. While I still have some concerns, I have come to feel that the benefits of providing others access to my source code outweigh the negatives and unknowns. To that end, despite my misgivings, I made Source Access a Patreon Milestone Goal. I had no idea whether I'd ever meet that Goal, but I decided to let the community decide, and decide they did, overwhelmingly so! My Patrons are awesome. So, as promised, I am posting the Source Code.
Post only confirmed bugs here. Do not post crash logs, you can post pastebin links to FML logs, but no crash logs.

Regarding new features/behavior changes, please submit a Suggestion Issue to the Tracker before you write a single line of code. Keeping everyone on the same page saves time and effort and reduces negative experiences all around when a change turns out to be controversial.

“Surely there is a mine for silver, And a place where gold is refined. Iron is taken from the earth, And copper is smelted from ore.
Man puts an end to darkness, And searches every recess for ore in the darkness and the shadow of creepers. He breaks open a shaft away from villages; In places forgotten by feet they dig far away from villagers; They jump to and fro.
As for the earth, from it comes bread, But underneath it is turned up by fire and lava; Its stones are the source of emeralds, And it contains redstone dust. That path no bird knows, Nor has the parrot’s eye seen it. The proud ocelot has not trodden it, Nor has the fierce wolf passed over it.
He puts his hand on the flint; He overturns the mountains at the roots. He cuts out channels in the rocks, And his eye sees every precious thing. He dams up the streams from trickling; What is hidden he brings forth to light.
But where can wisdom be found? And where is the place of understanding? Man does not know its value, Nor is it found in the Nether or the End. The void says, ‘It is not in me’; And the sea says, ‘It is not with me.’ It cannot be purchased for gold, Nor can silver be weighed for its price. It cannot be valued in stars, in precious obsidian or the heart of the sea. Neither gold nor crystal can equal it, Nor can it be exchanged for jewelry of fine gold. No mention shall be made of coral or quartz, For the price of wisdom is above emeralds. Lapis Lazuli cannot equal it, Nor can it be valued in ingots of gold.
From where then does wisdom come? And where is the place of understanding? It is hidden from the eyes of all living, And concealed from the birds of the air. If you search through the bones and question the dead, they say, 'we've heard only rumors of it.'
God understands its way, And He knows its place. For He looks to the ends of the earth, And sees under the whole heavens, To establish a weight for the wind, And apportion the waters by measure. When He made a law for the rain, And a path for the thunderbolt, Then He saw wisdom and declared it; He prepared it, indeed, He searched it out.
And to man He said, ‘Behold, the reverence and love of the Lord, that is wisdom, And to depart from evil is understanding.’ ”
