Spokesman Gus Melonas says the shutdown of the train line affects Amtrak and Sounder services. The passenger line has been closed since December 17. A line used by freight trains continues to be used. Earlier this week, BNSF has said they hoped to open the passenger line by Monday.
Melonas says another 40-foot long and three-foot deep slide hit the passenger line on Wednesday. He says rail crews continue cleanup of debris that has hit the train line.
