It looks functional, but can It bear loads, I had a similar design I used as a cable car with a clothesline, but gravity smacked my bitch up.

It can support weight quite well. I loaded the wheel up with a lot of 2x12 bricks and it didn't fall, it just tilted. With 2 wheels its very stable.

Very clever.
I'm sure you could figure out a way to put supports under the rail.

Trick!

If you went up and over the wheel you could evenly distribute your load and put on much more weight
