II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: This project replaces the roof on the Jacobsen Interpretive Center, the comfort station, completes the single-ply roofing on the annex, repairs exterior walls, and adds gutters. This project was requested previously.   
17. Project Justification: The building envelope is critical maintaining an environment conducive to the protection of irreplaceable artifacts, safety and comfort of the public and a manageable working area for employees. The roofs, walls and doors at the Nevada State Railroad Museum are at the end of their serviceable life. The Museum has become home to bats. Their guano presents a health issue. The protective coatings have failed and no longer prevent the elements from penetrating the substrate. Further, and more rapid deterioration, will be forthcoming. Exterior doors no longer fully close or prevent rain from entering the buildings. Roofs have failed in some cases. Repairs are undertaken at catastrophic failure when other budgets can step in and resolve problems. The roofing of the Jacobsen Interpretive Center (JIC), and Comfort Station are the largest concern. These roofs have not been replaced in over 20 years. The exterior walls of JIC are delaminating and appear near failure. The western facing wall of the JIC was built to be a temporary wall. It has faced the extremes in Nevada weather including wind, sun and precipitation. The exterior plywood is unsightly, coming apart, and needs replacement.
18. Project Background Information: Project Background Information The Nevada State Railroad Museum site includes the Jacobsen Interpretive Center, the Annex building (and extension), Restoration Shop, the Wabaska Depot, the Nelson House, a comfort station, a water tower, and the adjoining park.    
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): Continued deferred maintenance will increase the risk of exposure of artifacts to the elements causing significant damage and costs for repair. Further, upon complete failure, the Museum will no longer be able to meet its mission and the public will no longer be able to access this significant part of Nevada’s history.
