Northline Sounder resumption delayed until Friday

Northline Sounder service between Seattle and Everett will not resume Thursday because of  the size of Tuesday’s mudslide onto the BNSF Railway tracks and the required cleanup, according to Sound Transit.

A 48-hour moratorium was issued after the mudslide Tuesday morning, which would have meant resumption of service on Thursday morning. However, an additional 24 hours is needed, Sound Transit says.

Crews worked throughout the day Tuesday to remove 8,000 cubic yards of material, BNSF spokesman Gus Melonas said.

Sound Transit will provide special buses with direct service to and from Northline Sounder stations, in addition to local bus service. Northline Sounder Service is expected to resume Friday.

Thursday morning bus service:

Everett-Seattle: Special buses will depart Everett Station at 5:45 a.m., 6:15 a.m., 6:45 a.m., and 7:15 a.m. in the Greyhound loading area. Riders may also board regularly scheduled ST Express Route 510 departing every 10 minutes.

Mukilteo-Seattle: Special buses will depart Mukilteo Station at 6:26 a.m. and 7:26 a.m. at the traffic circle at the train platform. Riders may also board regularly scheduled Community Transit Route 417 at the Ferry Terminal departing at 5:49 a.m., 6:21 a.m., 6:51 a.m., 7:21 a.m., and 7:53 a.m.

Edmonds-Seattle:  Special buses will depart Edmonds Station at 6:41 a.m. and 7:41 a.m. at the north side of the Amtrak lot. Riders may also board regularly scheduled Community Transit Route 416 at Edmonds Station departing at 5:45 a.m., 6:15 a.m., 6:34 a.m., 6:55 a.m., and 7:42 a.m.
