Spokesman Gus Melonas said the shutdown of the train line affects Amtrak and Sounder services. The passenger line has been closed since Dec. 17. A line used by freight trains continues to be used. Earlier this week, BNSF has said it hoped to open the passenger line by Monday.
Melonas said another 40-foot long and three-foot deep slide hit the passenger line on Wednesday. He said rail crews continue cleanup of debris that has hit the train line.
