The Associated Press
Passenger train service north of Seattle resumed Friday morning after heavy rains and winds kept the tracks closed to passenger trains since midday Monday.
BNSF Railways spokesman Gus Melonas says the railway stopped passenger and commuter service between Everett and Seattle for safety reasons. Most routes in Washington remained open to freight travel.
Melonas says there had been at least 10 slides affecting tracks since Monday morning.
