Mudslides halt Amtrak service between Seattle, Vancouver, B.C.

Mudslides near Everett have stopped Amtrak service from Seattle to Vancouver, according to Amtrak.

Amtrak is using buses to shuttle passengers between the two cities during a 48-hour moratorium imposed on passenger rail service by BNSF Railway. The railway wants to make sure the area is stable before sending passenger trains through.

Amtrak service to Vancouver, B.C., is expected to be restored on Friday. Service to points south of Seattle are running according to normal schedules.
