EVERETT, Wash. - Two mudslides that blocked the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad track between Everett and Mukilteo have been removed.

Spokesman Gus Melonas says freight service resumed at 10:30 Wednesday morning. One slide had covered the main line south of Everett, and the second slide hit the track near Mukilteo with mud, rocks and trees.

Amtrak and Sounder passenger trains are still on a 48-hour safety moratorium while crews monitor the slope above the tracks.
