Before and after, same spot - 39 years apart.
Canadian National ET44AC taking a left from the former Grand Trunk to the former Illinois Central at Harvey, Illinois - February 25, 2017 and 39 years before; Grand Trunk action on August 10, 1978.
The CN engines are on the northeast connector that will climb up to the CN/IC mainline.

We are in Harvey, IL in 1941. This view, looking east along approx 156th St shows the three railroads in town. On the embankment (foreground) is the IC (their Harvey psgr station can be seen to left), followed by (distant) the B&OCT and (far distant) the GTW. (From the facebook page "I'm From Harvey, IL.")
[So this crossing would be out-of-frame to the left.]
Bob Lalich Among the factories seen here was Whiting Corp, makers of overhead cranes, widely used in steel mills.
