Amtrak’s Everett-Seattle service resumes

The Associated Press and Seattle Times staff

Amtrak says passenger-train service has resumed between Everett and Seattle after a 48-hour safety moratorium was lifted.

Amtrak said in a statement early Sunday that BNSF Railway has cleared its tracks and re-opened the route.

A mudslide hit railroad tracks at 12:30 a.m. Friday near Edmonds.

On Wednesday night, a Sound Transit commuter train on its way to Everett was stopped by a slide. The engineer put on the emergency brake, and the train stopped with its front end in shallow debris.

Sound Transit now says going forward, it will consider pre-emptively canceling trains — as opposed to waiting until after a slide — if weather and monitoring devices indicate a high risk. Read more.
