Modular Chests

This mod adds a modular chest which when placed next to each other can form longer chests.
These chests were mainly designed to use when loading/unloading trains.

The chests use the same recipe as iron chests and have the same capacity as iron chests would have had if combined.

Comments, requests, and bug reports are much appreciated.
