Mudslides cancel Sounder’s “Black Friday” trains between Everett and Seattle

Sound Transit announced it will cancel special day-after-Thanksgiving train service through Everett, Mukilteo, Edmonds and Seattle, because mudslides continued to occur today on the bluffs along Puget Sound. 

By policy of Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway, which owns the tracks, all passenger travel is suspended for 48 hours following a mudslide.  Spokeswoman Kimberly Reason said service is expected to resume Monday morning, but riders should check for Sound Transit alerts, in case weekend mudslides cause more cancellations.

Mudslides are common in the trackways north of Seattle, where Washington state is planning a soil-stabilization project.

South-line service will still proceed Friday, on the special schedule shown below.
