Burlington Northern Santa Fe spokesman Gus Melonas said Saturday that a 48-hour moratorium on passenger and commuter train service is now being extended indefinitely.
He said engineers are worried about safety due to more than 10 mudslides that have hit tracks in recent days.
He said crews will assess the situation day by day.
Freight train traffic is moving through the corridor at restricted speeds.
