Mudslide closes rail line south of Everett

Published:
A mudslide Tuesday morning just south of Everett will stop passenger rail service between Seattle and Everett until Thursday morning.
BNSF spokesman Gus Melonas says the 7:20 a.m., 20-foot-long slide of trees, mud and rocks has been cleared off the tracks and freight trains are moving again.
For safety reasons, Amtrak and Sound Transit trains will not be allowed on the tracks until 7:20 a.m. Thursday.
That extends a moratorium on passenger rail through the corridor put in place after a slide Sunday night north of Seattle.
Melonas says Tuesday’s slide was the 12th this fall and winter.
