Amtrak service between Bellingham, Vancouver, B.C., suspended

Passenger train service between Bellingham and Vancouver, B.C., has been canceled until  Wednesday because of a mudslide on the tracks.

Amtrak Cascades trains will likely resume Wednesday evening after BNSF Railway reopens the tracks, according to Amtrak. Charter buses are being provided and will cover all missed stops.

Monday night, BNSF reopened its tracks between Everett and Seattle after multiple mudslides blocked the tracks Saturday evening. Amtrak Cascades and Empire Builder trains have resumed normal operations in the Seattle area.

Northline Sounder service between Everett and Seattle is scheduled to resume Tuesday morning.
