EVERETT — A mudslide just south of Mukilteo Wednesday evening will again cancel Sound Transit Sounder service through Friday morning, officials said.
The mudslide reset a 48-hour moratorium on passenger rail trains restrictions. A mudslide just south of Everett derailed a Burlington Northern Santa Fe freight train Monday afternoon. On Tuesday, a second mudslide further impacted Sound Transit rail lines.
