SEATTLE — Amtrak has canceled all train service between Seattle and Portland through Thursday over a landslide blocking the tracks.
Amtrak put out the alert around 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday. This is part of a larger BNSF Railway passenger train moratorium triggered by the landslide.
Service between Seattle and Portland will resume at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday. For anyone who had a reservation for Tuesday or Wednesday, additional charges will be waived for customers who need to reserve a new date for their travel. You can make those arrangements by calling Amtrak’s reservation center at 1-800-USA-RAIL.
Rainy weather has brought flooding and landslides to areas across Western Washington on Tuesday. A separate landslide blocked a part of the Burke-Gilman Trail in Seattle earlier in the day.
