Six axle GMD-1 CN 1614 is at rest outside Symington Diesel Shop, wearing CN class GR-612a.
My source indicates CN 1614 was a 1988 rebuild of GMD-1 CN 1046, becoming  the highest numbered 1600. 
CN 1600's were rebuilt 6 axle (A1A-A1A) GMD-1's.  CN 1400's are rebuilt 4 axle (B-B) GMD-1's. 
In 1998, CN 1614 was converted to B-B trucks and became CN 1444, class GR-412b. I guess lower axle load GMD-1's for lightweight rail branch lines were no longer required.  
Oddball numbered SW1200RS CS-02 (car shop) switcher is to the right, painted black overall. 
I found a picture of a CS-02 switcher in Edmonton at a later date with the usual CN orange cab and front.
The caption of this image also refers to CS-02 - http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=19572

Oddball numbered CN SW1200RS CS-02 is to the right, painted black overall. Canadian Trackside Guide helps explain units CS-01, CS-02, CS-03, and CS-04. This is the first CS-02, originally CN 1272. CS-02 was a car shop switcher based in Edmonton. First CS-02 and first CS-03 were retired in 1999.

The second CS-02 was formerly CN 1379; that CS-02 was withdrawn in 2003. An image of that one awaiting its fate - http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=19572
