Connection between NS/PRR and BRC

(Update: the Rock Island Junction consisted of more than just this connection.)

Steven J. Brown posted two photos with the comment:
Now and then - South Chicago - Forty years apart:
A little departure from posting similar angles from different decades. The first image was taken last week, February 24, 2017. The second image was taken forty years ago standing on the abutment that appears in the approximate center of the first picture looking at a train coming down the hill - October 9, 1977.

The track in the foreground is no longer connected behind the photographer.

2: Conrail GP40's descending the hill to the BRC or Rock Island at South Chicago - October 9, 1977. I think 3268 was a EMD demonstrator #19?? 3068 in trail became a NJT GP40FH-2 #4134
