Sounder train

Be prepared for possible delays  due to freight interference as a result of a Union Pacific derailment and flooding in the Midwest.

Union Pacific had a freight train derail on Friday, March 15, near Ritzville, Washington.  This was a 23 car event that included a hazardous cargo spill and subsequent fire.  At this moment there is no estimated time for reopening the UP line.  All UP trains have been re-routed to BNSF tracks causing additional traffic and congestion throughout their system.  We expect this to be resolved within a few days.

Flooding in the Midwest has shut down multiple BNSF and Union Pacific subdivisions and trains are being re-routed in an unpredictable manner (waves) through our area.  Seattle/Tacoma are the main ports to China and the number of trains arriving are creating capacity challenges for the ports, rail yards and storage tracks along the alignment.  The FRA declared an emergency event on Tuesday due to the extreme impact on the railroads.  Some estimates indicate this will last for several months.  BNSF and UP are working aggressively to make repairs and re-open lines where possible.
