No. There hasn't been since the start of Amtrak in May of 1971. The last passenger service was "The Georgian" operated by the Louisville & Nashville over the the old Nashville, Chattanooga, & St. Louis RR. There was lots of talk in the 70's of rerouting the Floridian from Nashville-Birmingham-Montgomery to a Nashville-Chattanooga-Atlanta route but the whole thing was killed off before this rather sane move could seriously considered and acted on. A site was even selected in Chattanooga for an Amtrak stop is it were to happen.
