Thread: Northwest Detours and track conditions

  1. Default Northwest Detours and track conditions

    I thought it might be interesting to have a new thread especially for track conditions and detours in the Pacific Northest (WA, OR, ID, BC, etc.).
    Given the damage around Snohomish and King Counties a few days ago (the photos of the Index area are something!), how have the Scenic and Bellingham subs fared?

    A member can start a new thread for each event (like a big storm, derailment, etc) in the appropriate regional forum, the "In the News" or the "Heads Up" forum.

    Anyone have any idea which mains, which are currently open, and any interesting detours as a result of this week's storms?

    Sounder/Amtrak service between Seattle and Everett was canceled earlier this week due to a tree and/or mudslide across the tracks. Freights were running yesterday (Wed. 12/9). Today is wait and see as yet another storm passes through the Puget Sound region.

    There has been flooding on roads near US 2 in Monroe, Sultan, and Goldbar, but no reports of flooding on the BNSF Stevens Pass mainline.

    The Union Pacific main through the Columbia Gorge is currently closed due to the Eagle Creek Fire at Cascade Locks. Wonder if UP is detouring over BNSF Fallbridge, Stampede and Yakima Valley Subs, or if they are just sitting tight.
