SEATTLE -- A Burlington Northern Santa Fe spokesman says train passenger service between Seattle and Everett has been canceled until next Monday.
Spokesman Gus Melonas said continuing damage from heavy rainfall has made the lines used by the Sounder passenger trains unsafe. He said railroad crews are taking out trees with roots exposed to decrease possibility of debris falling on the lines.
One train line has been able to provide freight service.
Passenger train service between Seattle and Everett has been shut down since Dec. 17. Prior to that, numerous closures occurred in November because of rainfall.
