Afternoon northline Sounder service between Seattle – Everett cancelled 11/23/11

Thursday, November 24, 2011

Sounder commuter rail service between Everett and Seattle was cancelled Wednesday evening due to mudslides across the tracks north of Edmonds,

Special Sounder service to the Apple Cup and Seahawks game is expected to run this weekend if no new slides occur.

If no additional slides occur, special event trains to the Apple Cup and Seahawk games will operate this weekend, and normal service will resume on Monday.

Sounder service was not scheduled to run Thursday and Friday in observance of the Thanksgiving Day holiday.

Sounder operates on railway owned and maintained by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway. The railway requires a 48-hour waiting period after mudslides before resuming passenger service to ensure safe operating conditions.

AFTERNOON BACK-UP BUS SERVICE on WEDNESDAY 11/23 (northbound):

Seattle - Edmonds: Two Starline charter buses will depart Fourth Avenue South and South Jackson Street at 4:05 p.m. and 5:35 p.m. Riders may also board regularly scheduled Community Transit Route 416 at 5th and James St.

Riders should visit the Sound Transit webpage for updates before starting their commute on Monday, November 28.

Riders can sign up to receive automatic e-mail service alerts for Sounder Seattle-Everett, Sounder Seattle-Tacoma, Central Link, Tacoma Link or ST Express to get the latest rider information.
