D700-30 @ 10:15pm westward departing Hartford mp CG68.7 & heading to their next stop in Coloma mp CG75.8 Amtrak P370-30 is running extremely late. It appears, Amtrak P370 attempted their journey tonight from Chicago using the same engine, the IDTX #4631, that had issues this morning. The IDTX #4610 was then added to the consist to get them on the move again.
