X's wheel assemblies

Does the zero car have the third and fourth set of wheels, just for good measure? Do the X assemblies have guide wheels?

The zero does not have any of the 3rd and 4th sets of wheels due to the fact that it does not need to rotate anything. I do not believe the "X" assemblies have guide wheels, in fact I am pretty sure of it.

It's very hard to see but I actually think they do! I could be seeing something else but this is the best picture I was able to find.

I dont think they do because they are rounded out to grip it instead of a guide wheel (they are curved around the rail about 1/4 of the way on each side)

Let's not get confused here. X's outer (spin) rail wheel assembly features four 'cupped' wheels and does not have a lateral guide wheel. The train already has lateral guidance by the large inner (running) rail wheel assembly viewable here..

Sorry guys, didn't have enough time to find a picture right before English Class started, and Phyter said it better than me. :) .............
