Queensland Rail says it has completed its report into an incident where a child fell from a moving train, south of Cairns in the state's far north.
The five-year-old boy fell from the Sunlander last December and was picked up by a motorist who saw him walking near the tracks a short time later.
He was treated in the Cairns Base Hospital.
Queensland Rail says it has since increased rail safety announcements, warning signs and staff training.
The Department of Transport and Main Roads has confirmed the Rail Safety Regulator has received the report.
However, a spokeswoman says it will not be publicly released as it is "commercial-in-confidence".
A spokesman for the Transport and Main Roads Minister says he is yet to view the report and will respond publicly once he has had a chance to look at it.
Queensland Rail says it is doing a full audit of the locking mechanisms on train doors and upgrading them.
