Creating a Minecraft Village, Phase 3: Transportation

As mentioned previously, mine as much iron ore as you can. This can take a while. Once you've got a good supply of rail, build a rail line to your new village. Make it as direct as possible, and keep some spare rail on hand for when monsters (creepers, nethermen, &c.) destroy sections of your track. Hopefully that won't happen too often.

You may also want to take the opportunity to improve your village with additional buildings. The more doors there are in your new village, the greater the total potential population will be. It may also be worthwhile to add whatever other necessities you need (i.e., food, trees) if you're going to be working the area for a while, so you can avoid frequent trips back and forth to the old village.

Additional Village Improvements. In addition to the buildings, a small farm and tree farm have been added for convenience.

Personally, I like the have a wide variety of buildings in my villages, but it doesn't matter what you build as long as there are plenty of doors.

Once you're satisfied with the way your new village is set up, it's time to move the villagers in.
