SEATTLE (AP) - The main rail line between Seattle and Everett, Washington, has reopened for passenger traffic after crews cleaned up trees and debris from a weekend mudslide.

BNSF Railway spokesman Gus Melonas said a 48-hour passenger rail traffic moratorium on the rail segment ended Monday evening.

A mudslide south of Everett blocked the line Saturday evening, halting freight and passenger service.

Freight traffic has resumed. Melonas said Monday evening that Amtrak and Sounder trains have a green light to resume operations.
