Hi List Members,
 
While the image below does not feature freight cars (there are some in the background tho...) the hand powered crane shown certainly was used to load and unload steam era freight cars...
 
The foundation for that NJI&I crane is still visible in South Bend, IN right here at the corner of Edward and McPherson Streets: https://goo.gl/maps/onHpE16Si4rQW5r57 
The diamond that the NJI&I used to cross the NYC (SS&S) to reach Studebaker Corp was immediately north of that crane.
