VANCOUVER, Wash. — Amtrak has canceled all trains between Portland and Seattle due to a landslide blocking railroad tracks.
On Monday, the railroad company BNSF reported the landslide, six miles north of Vancouver, Washington, was blocking part of the line.
A spokesperson for Amtrak said service on the Cascades and Coast Starlight routes is impacted for at least 48 hours, through May 10. Bus service is being provided for those affected.
Amtrak currently operates four daily round-trip trains between Portland and Seattle on the Cascades route. Coast Starlight runs daily from Seattle to Los Angeles.
Train service between Portland and Eugene is not impacted and is operating as normal, as are trains between Seattle and Vancouver, BC.
