CN 1439 is an old friend of mine, I saw him when I first ventured to railfan the CN mainline back in April of 2003. He, along with twin 1434 were pulling IMS cars out of the now closed Winnipeg facility.

Today he's still working with another twin, 1405, this time on the Warman sub tramp job. Note the odd case of CN self-patching, you can still see the big '1439' under the cab, as a smaller '1439' is placed in the center. Why?

The sign for CN Richmond is just in front of the unit (cropped out), in fact the photo was lines up against it. Richmond itself is a wye on the Warman sub, although I have never heard crews actually call it. Unlike 'North Saskatoon' a couple miles away, which is a very well used siding.

Good photo. This train can't be the CN 630, as that one works the South East industrial park at Stonebridge. This is probably the 715.
You're using logic Elijah, you know CN doesn't work that way. LOL. Seriously I have heard the 630 & 715 work both of those jobs. Similar to how 520/540/560 can all be either the Clavet or Elrose wayfreights.
