Norfolk Southern has added a Saturday outbound train from the Greer Inland Port to Charleston. That increases outbound NS service to six trains a week with a Saturday cutoff of 5 p.m. and availability in Charleston by noon the following Monday.
The schedule of inbound trains per week remains at five while the container gates at the South Carolina Inland Port are open 24/7 for truck activity.
Randy Olson, who helped oversee the greatest growth of Greer Commission of Public Works, will retire effective Dec. 31.
The official announcement for Olson, Engineer & Planning Manager, made mention of his intent to retire. “Randy was in the mix of everything and had more knowledge than anyone. We relied on (Randy) and he delivered,” said Commission Chairman Jeff Howell. “I wish he would stay around. We will definitely miss him.”
