Named after the pioneer who brought steam engine to Columbia, Francisco Montoya, The station was opened by him in 1871. It is because of the railway that Columbia, especially Barranquilla, became such an important point for imports and exports in the Caribbean. The railway development bought commercial development along with it. Today the building is well maintained. There’s also a steam engine replica from the times kept there in a good condition. It’s a nice calm place to sit and enjoy the history of the railway.
