“Whiskey Curve is west of Valemount and is called that because a car of whiskey was wrecked on this curve,” according to a local history book. “Most of the whiskey disappeared before it could be cleaned up.”

“The train wreck in Whiskey Fill occurred, I believe, in 1924,” according to one correspondent. “It is said there is still the possibility of finding a bottle of well-aged Scotch there in the muskeg, as many were hidden at the time.”

However, the section foreman on the Canadian National Railway at the time recalls that the wreck was in April 1933. (See comment below).
