Redstone Transport Pipes are very useful for timing other machines using items. When the pipe has an item in it, it turns bright red, like powered redstone. It works like a detector rail.
A good way to use Golden Transport Pipes is to put a Redstone Transport Pipe before the golden one. Once the item passes through the redstone pipe, it will send a redstone current into the golden pipe and your items will shoot through!
