The wheels have metal tires and wooden spokes ; back wheels are larger than the front set. Tied to the wooden back axle and at right angles to it are two sets of metal leaf springs. The front spring is parallel to the front axle. A reach connects the two axles Condition: In general, all metal is rusted. The wheels are disintegrating. 2) [October 2013] - this wagon was rebuilt in 2011 including the box and the wheels. The wheels were constructed by a wheelwright from Armstrong BC.
