Freight Train De-railment Shuts Train Tunnel Thru Everett

July 5, 2013

Downtown Everett, Everett

6:00am Update:
Sound Transit and Amtrak Cascades are both canceled from Everett due to the derailment. No word yet on re-opening. It looks like the wheels are off the tracks on a couple of freight cars.

Waiting to hear how this affects Sound Transit and other train traffic thru Everett, but it appears a portion of a freight train has derailed at the entrance to the Everett train tunnel. More when we get it.
