  In the picture you cannot remove an axle with the side frames still on the bolster. The truck has to be completely disassembled. You would also need some kind of crane.

In the 1920s and 1930s (the photo below is from May 1930) things were even simpler. This image is from PFE's Nampa Shop, and is one of a long series showing MANY steps in replacing wheel sets. All photos have a single workman, no crane, just a jack for raising the car body
