Since the new update, I have been loving minecart systems and find them great fun.  But I have run out of all of my gold.

I do have a strip mine at layer 12, which is where I get my diamond.  I was just wondering if there is a better way to get gold, or should I just continue with what I'm doing ?  Thanks.

No, better way to get gold. Layer 10-14 is where ALL ores spawn the most.

TNT if you can. Either that or tunnel down randomly until you find a cave. Those are full of gold ore. Be sure to have a method of navigating back though!

I found gold by making stairs going down under my house. You really don't know how long it took for me to find it, but I eventually found gold.

Create a wide open space in the Nether, but only 3 blocks high so zombie pigmen can spawn but not ghasts. Leave the vicinity so they can spawn, go back, kill them all, collect all the gold nuggets, rinse and repeat.

I bet you don't have a strip mine, because a strip mine is open to sky and rain.

Actually gold can be found below layer 30, so you could do a branch mine at 18 and another at 24 and find plenty.  And the thing about caves isn't true.  Gold is equally rare everywhere.  Caving is fun, but if you don't have a cave handy, don't go searching.  Just mine.

Perhaps, if you get bored of mining, you could go to the nether and kill zombie pigmen. You can get gold nuggets, and xp as a bonus. You'd need 54 gold nuggets to craft 6 powered rails, so I don't suggest this method unless you want some xp.
You could also go exploring for desert pyramids, those things contain a lot of gold (I've gotten 30+ gold ingots from one)
STOP!
