According to the Post & Courier, the success of the State Ports Authority’s Inland Port has a group in the Upstate thinking about using the Charleston-to-Greer rail route for passenger service.

The South Carolina Passenger Rail Consortium is floating the idea of having twice-daily passenger service between the two cities, according to a report last week in The Greenville News.
