Issue #34010: Unable to warn Desdemona in Railroad quest 'Underground Undercover' - breaking Railroad questline


I played the game years ago and wanted to do the Railway ending but faced a game breaking bug. I've just started again after watching the TV show and have the exact same bug.

On the Railroad quest 'Underground Undercover' you are required to warn Desdemona at the Railroad HQ (Z1-14 has urgent news. The Brotherhood of Steel has somehow discovered the location of Railroad HQ. I must warn Desdemona before it's too late.) after talking to the Synth Z1-14 at the institute.

However, when you try to talk to her (despite the quest marker being over her) she just repeats her generic dialogue and the quest doesn't continue. Making it impossible to continue the questline.

I'm on the PS4 (vanilla), however looking online many other people have this issue on other platforms. It is as shown here:

I would really appreciate this being looked at. It's so frustrating!
