Tracks close by mudslide reopened; commuter service to resume Monday

The Associated Press reported Sunday that 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 spokesman Gus Melonas said Sunday that the commuter train service resumed at 6:15 a.m.

Passenger trains had been blocked for 48 hours as a precaution after the slide was detected by a sensor fence at 6:15 a.m. Friday, AP said. Following the slide, Sound Transit cancelled its commuter rail service Friday between Everett and Seattle.

According to the Sound Transit website, Sounder Northline service between Seattle and Everett will resume normal service Monday with a regular operating schedule.
