General Notes about the Rail Service: The South Carolina Railway Commission provides rail service in the state, with CSX and Norfolk Southern as the two major rail carriers. Each terminal in Charleston is operated by an independent rail service which feeds these terminals. These independents transfer railcars from the individual terminals to the two major carriers’ offsite locations.
