The Nevada State Railroad Museum in Carson City (will be) closed for
about 10 days to clean up damage sustained during the storm this week.

Prison crews assisted with sandbagging the property Tuesday and
diverted runoff around museum property to avoid more damage as
the storm continues this week.

The main museum took on some water, but exhibits and historic collections
were not damaged. The museum grounds suffered erosion and external
property damage making it unsafe for visitors, and the grounds will
be closed to the public until the cleanup and repair is completed,
estimated to be around Jan. 21.

restored McKeen motor car:
