Built in 1907, Northern Pacific Locomotive No. 2164 has been on display at Camp Hancock Historical Site since its retirement in 1955. In conjunction with a project to restore the historic steam locomotive to its original paint scheme, a new protective structure was designed to preserve the locomotive at its existing location.

The primary requirement of the shelter was to provide protection for the locomotive. This included protection from exposure to the elements, and security and lighting to ward off vandalism. A second requirement was to highlight the locomotive by providing an attractive structure which complements the other historic buildings located on the site.

The shelter is a combination of steel and wood framing on a concrete foundation. The primary materials used are a cast stone veneer, painted exposed steel, tongue-and-groove wood sheathing in painted and natural finishes, and cedar shingles. Windows used at the clerestory are wood eight-light utility sashes. Site-related amenities included decorative aluminum security fencing and lighting.

Design cues were taken from historic railroad structures. Eight steel "lattice" columns are supported on piers of rusticated cast stone. The canopy is framed in steel with exposed wood rafters and tongue-and-groove decking left in a natural finish. A wood-framed clerestory surmounts the roof, providing additional daylight within the shelter. The form and materials of the clerestory echo the railroad aesthetic.
