Each New Mexico Rail Runner Express station is distinguished by a symbol representative of the area in which the station is located. The symbol for the Montaño station, located in Albuquerque’s North Valley near the Rio Grande Bosque, depicts a cottonwood tree leaf and a sprinkling of cottonwood seeds. Rio Grande cottonwoods have been growing in Albuquerque’s bosque (Spanish for woods) for more than a million years.  With heart-shaped leaves, cottonwood trees are sometimes referred to as the heart of the bosque, as they provide critical habitat for the many birds, mammals and insects of the ecosystem.
