You need to travel, uninterrupted, by minecart on a rail for 500 blocks in a single direction.

I salvaged the bulk of the regular rails from abandoned mineshafts found underground.

You can craft rails on a crafting table by placing iron ingots on the left and right (top, bottom and middle) and sticks in the middle.
Six iron and one stick gives you 16 rails.

For powered rails you exchange the iron for gold and add redstone dust to the bottom middle square.
Six gold, one stick and one redstone dust gives you 6 powered rails.

Redstone torches are not yet available in Windows 10 Edition - the powered rails currently work without a powersource.

Redstone torches have been implemented and you need to place one next to each powered rail. The rails should light up as you place the torch, letting you know it's active.
Thanks to napoearth for the update on redstone torches now being available.

I placed my powered rails 17 blocks apart, but you might be able to place them less frequently.
