II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: This project will remove and replace deteriorated ties and other material. The surface will be compacted and ballasted.    
17. Project Justification: The railroad right-of-way is a key infrastructure in the NSRM’s mission. This railroad was constructed in the 1980s of used materials, much of which dates to the 1930s. The federal code 49CFR pt 213, delineates the condition and maintenance requirements for the safe operation of railroads. Within the guidance this code provides, it is determined that 1/3 of the cross ties require replacing. This is far beyond the abilities of the agency to complete. In addition, three railroad frogs and 7 switches require significant. This has been requested in a limited fashion in previous CIPs.
18. Project Background Information: The maintenace of the railroad has been conducted by the Staff of The Nevada State Railroad Museum. While the work has been completed in a satifactory fashion, the recent flooding event uncovered some deficiencies. The scope of the project has grown past the ability of the agency and its budget. The Museum operates in a very conservative manner with reduced speeds, light loads and gentle movement. The 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: Cross ties and mechanical connectors
19b. Year existing equipment was installed: 1930s initially and 1980 as the most recent
19c. Manufacturer of existing equipment: 1930-1990s
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): in 2017 exposed the nature of decay of the infrastructure. Further deterioration risks the Museum’s ability to meet its mission, and the public will no longer be able to access this significant part of Nevada’s history. aggressive attempts to conduct theft will meet with little resistance.
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):
23. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
23a. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time? No
23b. Explain:
23c. Has any design work been completed on the proposed project? No
23d. What is the latest date this project could be completed without disrupting your program? 2022
23e. What is the driving proposed completion date? the deficiency was noted in 2003. It is time to act.
