CARSON CITY, Nev. — Erosion from heavy rains has closed the grounds of the Nevada State Railroad Museum in Carson City, the Reno Gazette-Journal reports.

While flood damage inside the museum and its exhibits is limited, the museum grounds suffered erosion and external property damage causing museum officials to close the property to the public.

Nevada brought in prisoners to help museum volunteers install sandbags as more rain moved through Carson City late last week. Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval and local elected officials also visited the museum to assist with repair efforts.

As repairs continue, museum officials say it may not reopen to the public until sometime after Jan. 21.

The museum is home to several Virginia & Truckee steam locomotives and other historic pieces of rolling stock.
