Mine cart dispenser

A mine cart dispenser example: Self reseting, easy to activate, and with a meaningful indicator light.
I watched allot of other videos for inspiration, but none of them did exactly what I wanted. I really wanted to get a mine cart station, with a holding area for extra carts. And I also wanted it to be nearly foolproof. Requiring nothing other than walking up, and getting in a waiting cart.
Let me know what you guys think, I hope it helps!
My next step is to make a nice switching station for destinations, I'm thinking a very simple red stone computer, with a group of signs and pressure plates to choose destination. Just step on the plate for where you want to go, and then hop on.
I also need to add in an extra cart overflow system, but that should be easy compared to the switching station. (Im thinking just dump carts that don't fit into a pit of lava )

If I do an AND between the "Ready" signal, and the "Rider wants to go" signal, it will prevent the system from launching until the booster cart has gone through a full reset! Fixes the "bug" and also requires no more effort on the riders part, other than having to wait an extra half second.
Woot, red stone is so much fun!
I haven't done binary logic gate stuff since college, so it's fun to explore the concepts again! It's amazing how much I take for granted when working with a high level programming language all the time like python/java.

And I loved the idea to use glass to showcase the system.
