BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Amtrak says service between Bellingham and Vancouver, British Columbia, has been suspended until Wednesday afternoon because of a mudslide on the track.

Amtrak says that BNSF Railway on Monday closed a track on a route used by Amtrak Cascades trains. The tracks are scheduled to reopen at 12:45 p.m. Wednesday.

Charter buses are being provided in place of Amtrak trains between those stations.

Amtrak says service from Bellingham south to Seattle and other points is unaffected.
