January 1936 - Passenger Engine No. 7856 of the Union Pacific rolled into the Los Angeles shops for a new set of tires.

Roepke, mechanical supervisor, second from right, signals crane operator while J.H. Sinnar, foreman of the shop, extreme right, oversees operations and makes certain that workmen are careful and in the clear in case of accident.
