Mudslide near Edmonds blocks rail traffic

SEATTLE — A mudslide late Sunday night has temporarily cut rail service on BNSF tracks north of Seattle.
BNSF spokesman Gus Melonas says the slide of mud, trees and debris struck about 11 p.m. between Seattle and Edmonds.
He says crews are working on the slide and expect to have freight trains rolling through the area again by early Monday morning.
But Melonas says that passenger trains between Seattle and Everett are barred from using the tracks for 48 hours to ensure they're stable.
No trains were hit or close enough to be affected by the mudslide.
