Passenger train service in the corridor had just been cleared to resume at about 4 a.m. Sunday following two mudslides that hit the tracks last week. The latest slide hit at about 9:30 p.m. Monday.
Burlington Northern Santa Fe spokesman Gus Melonas says two freight trains in the area were alerted by a signal system and stopped short of the slide, which hit about two miles south of Mukilteo.
Melonas said freight train traffic was expected to resume Tuesday.
The spokesman says it's the 73rd slide along the rail tracks between Seattle and Everett since Thanksgiving.
