Another mudslide delays trains north of Seattle

The Associated Press

Another mudslide has suspended passenger train service north of Seattle until at least Sunday.

Burlington Northern Santa Fe spokesman Gus Melonas says the mudslide struck at about 4 a.m. Friday a little more than two miles south of Mukilteo. Freight train traffic resumed later in the morning, but passenger rail service is subject to a 48-hour moratorium any time there's a mudslide by the tracks.

Passenger service was already suspended by a slide north of Mukilteo on Thursday afternoon, but Friday's slide means service won't resume until Sunday morning at the earliest.
