SEATTLE — A mudslide has shut down passenger train service between Seattle and Everett.

BNSF Railway spokesman Gus Melonas says passenger and commuter train service through the area is suspended until Saturday morning.

Crews are expecting to reopen the line to freight trains by Thursday afternoon.

The slide hit the BNSF mainline about 9 miles north of downtown Seattle at about 9:20 a.m. Thursday.
