WOODLAND, Wash -- Amtrak passengers traveling from Portland to Seattle had their trip come to a screeching halt just south of Woodland Wednesday night.

Amtrak sent buses in to pick up passengers and transport them on to Seattle.
The cause of the derailment was unknown. Regular rail service resumed Thursday morning.
The derailment was located near Whalen Road, west of Interstate 5.
