Originally a tripod, a fourth wheel was added for stability at some point, but seemed to cause more problems than it solved. The railroaders derailed the thing a few times before working out the kinks and getting it ready for families to take it for a short, downhill ride. See the Aug. 21 issue of the Revelstoke Times Review for more on Railway Days 2013.
