Passenger service disrupted after mudslide hits tracks near Edmonds

The Associated Press

EDMONDS  — A mudslide hit BNSF Railway tracks at 12:30 a.m. Friday near Edmonds.

Spokesman Gus Melonas says the tracks were cleared and freight trains resumed running at 3 a.m. But,a 48-hour safety moratorium will prevent passenger trains from rolling between Seattle and Everett this weekend. Buses will bridge the service.

Amtrak says passenger service between Seattle and Everett will resume Sunday.

Sound Transit says Sounder commuter train service will resume Monday, if no other events occur.

Melonas says railroad engineers are inspecting the roadbed and slopes for stability.
