Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
[note: no European significance!]

I imagine they had interchanges with all of the local railroads, including the Santa Fe, the D&RGW, and the Midland Terminal. The Rock Island roundhouse is now used by the local trolley museum, and it's located on a siding that connects directly to the Union Pacific mainline (the old D&RGW right of way).

This youtube shows (10:00) some unusual local freight traffic, looking west towards the very end of the Rock Island line. The roundhouse is in the trees at the far end.
