EDMONDS — Amtrak and Sound Transit Sounder passenger trains are running again on a stretch of railroad tracks north of Seattle that was closed because of a mudslide.
Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway spokesman Gus Melonas said Sunday that the commuter train service along Puget Sound resumed at 6:15 a.m.
Passenger trains had been blocked for 48 hours as a precaution after the slide was detected at 6:15 a.m. Friday.
Debris covered one of two parallel tracks 2 feet deep along 20 feet.
Freight trains were able to roll past the slide on the parallel track.
