Seattle-Everett passenger train services stopped by mudslide


SEATTLE - Tracks used by Amtrak Cascades, Empire Builder and Sounder Northline trains between Seattle and Everett were closed due to a mudslide Sunday.


A 48-hour moratorium period on passenger trains is in effect until Tuesday afternoon.


Passengers who have paid but choose not to travel due to the service disruption can receive a refund or a voucher for future travels.


The passenger and commuter trains should start rolling again north of Seattle on Tuesday.


If no additional mudslides occur, the Sounder train will operate between Mukilteo and Seattle (including Edmonds) according to the regular schedule on Tuesday morning.


Everett to Seattle passengers will have several bus options.

On Tuesday afternoon, Sounder Northline will resume all regular service, including Everett.
