II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: This project will provide for the conceptual design for deep interpretation of the impact of railroads in Nevada. This design will incorporate large exhibits that will educate the public on key elements of the growth of early Nevada. The collection of the Nevada State Railroad Museum will provide the foundation of a massive object-based learning experience. Design work will locate potential vignette sites, cost estimates and identify potential design and construction barriers. This design will allow the NSRM to approach the Dept of Tourism, the Dept of Transportation, the Department of Education, Carson City, surrounding counties, philanthropic and other organizations for developmental funding and support. The NSRM railroad will provide the backbone of the interpretation, taking visitors to a mining site that will represent Nevada’s close association with mineral recovery. The train ride will also have a logging area with working flume and will discuss the renewable material conservation and stewardship. This exhibit will also discuss how railroading tied distant areas together through agriculture. The interpretation will describe the movement of goods and materials through the depot and warehouse. Finally, the exhibit will discuss how fundamentally the world changed with the rapid, safe and inexpensive transportation of people. This project was not previously submitted as a CIP.
17. Project Justification: This preliminary design will provide the vision of future programming and will allow a thoughtful progression to development and construction.   
18. Project Background Information: The Nevada State Railroad Museum has one of the finest collection of 19th century railroading equipment on the planet. This fine set of rolling stock is able to teach the history of Nevada in a very dramatic fashion. However, the key to this story is context. Railroads changed the very character of the world and Nevada is no different. Settlements throughout Nevada were only viable because of affordable, reliable, safe and fast transportation. Nevada is a large state and is tied together with rail and asphalt. We can tell that story in a way that changes lives.   
19. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
19a. Type of equipment to be replaced:
19b. Year existing equipment was installed:
19c. Manufacturer of existing equipment:
19d. Model of existing equipment:
19e. Are there any known hazardous materials? No
Environmental Considerations
20a. Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.):
20b. Will the site require any hazardous material abatement? No
21. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): The Museum will continue to be able to explain the history, but we will never reach the full potential. Fully developing the 13 acres will impact K-12 educational goals and help the youth of Nevada reach their full potential.   
Health, Life Safety, and/or Legal Issues
22. Please describe any health, life safety, and/or legal issues that will be resolved by completing this project (Short Essay):
