Ogden yards "transfer man" c. 1880

From: "Vella Evans" vella@infowest.com

... My Great Grandfather, Robert Faddies, worked in the Ogden, Utah, yards from about 1875 to 1880. He was called a "transfer man" at the time, but current railroaders can't tell me what kind of work a transfer man did. Can you, please.
