Reposting from another thread.......

1972: Public Transport Commission formed, combining the Department of Railways (NSWGR) and the Department of Government Transport and Omnibus Services

1973: PTC absorbed the Sydney Harbour Transport Board, which operated Sydney Harbour Ferries Pty Ltd and the Port Jackson and Manly Steamship Co Ltd.

1980: PTC split up. Rail operations to the State Rail Authority, buses and ferries to the Urban Transport Authority. SRA had a subsidiary Railway Workshop Board.

1989: SRA restructured into separate operating divisions - CityRail, Countrylink and FreightRail.

1996: SRA split up into "new" SRA (CityRail and Countrylink), Freight Rail Corporation (FreightCorp), Rail Services Authority and Rail Access Corporation.

1999: RAC and RSA merged into the Rail Infrastucture Corporation.

2002: FreightCorp sold to Patrick/Toll as part of Pacific National. PN Rural & Bulk Division is effectively the old FreightCorp.

2004: SRA and RIC merged into RailCorp.

As usual, you have come up with the goods, and sadly I lived through a lot of it Some of us older hands haven't forgiven the State and Federal Govts for what they did.
