BNSF spokesman Gus Melonas says the slide caused by heavy rains struck shortly before midnight about 11 miles north of Seattle.
He said Monday that crews removed the mud, trees and debris and reopened the line to freight trains.
Melonas said a second slide occurred Monday morning in the Edmonds are at 4:30 a.m., sending debris onto tracks. The tracks were cleared and the line has been opened to freight traffic, but Melonas says a 48-hour moratorium on passenger trains along the line has been declared as a precaution.
