Has anyone had success finding railway annual reports on the NSW Open Government website?  https://www.opengov.nsw.gov.au/main
I have downloaded the main roads (1925 to 1988) and the Public Works (1888 to1979) annual reports from the open Gov website, so in theory the railways should be there the same as the main roads and PWD annual reports but have not found them. I know the railways changed names a few times since the 1890s and have tried searching using any of the various names for the time period it was mainly a government organisation. Not bothered with the later private company era.

Chasing railway annual reports 1890s to 1980s / 1990s mainly as that covers many of my northern NSW and standard gauge into Brisbane research topics. For the record, the Lismore Murwillumbah Condong line, which opened 24 December 1894, was operated by a government corporate body known as ‘The Railway Commissioners of NSW’ till 1907. The Office of Chief Commissioner for Railways and Tramways followed to 1932. The Department of Railways NSW followed, then the Public Transport Commission of NSW (PTC-NSW) in October 1972, later to become the State Rail Authority (SRA) in 1980.

James, my question is if anyone has found the railway annual reports on the opengov website that same way the main roads and PWD annual reports are freely available there. Should not need a Freedom of Information request as one was not needed to find the main roads and PWD reports on that public govenment website. So, if two NSW transport related annual reports (DMR and PWD) are there, then logic says another transport related (railways) annual reports could be there as well.
