Ann Arbor Road Power

During the Michigan Interstate days, I"ve only seen 3O1 and 3O3 on the south end of the Annie. Did they only work from Toledo north to Owosso? I know the GP35's were mainly road power but where were the Alco's mostly used? Rs1s?, Rs2's? S-series switchers? Thanks in advance.

RS1's worked Ann Arbor and Owosso or Frankfort.

RS2's worked the entire system as did GP35's.

Switchers worked Toledo and / or Frankfort.

There were some deviations to these patterns due to maintenance, availability, etc.

301 - 303 were property of the Interstate and not the Ann Arbor RR, paid for by the State of Michigan.

I used to see the RS-2s going through Oak Grove most days back in the 70s and early 80s.
