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

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

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.
