May 10th, 2019: Whistler Train Wreck is home to several stunning murals painted on the old wrecked boxcars.  Mixed with graffiti art, some of murals stand out from the rest.  In 2014 a beautiful mural was painted at Whistler Train Wreck in an unmistakably Salish style.  A killer whale stretches in an abrupt arc with other surreal looking animal faces meshed along the body.  Framed by a pink border and a large, golden sun-like disk behind, the brightly designed mural stands out sharply against the mess of graffiti covering the rest of the boxcar.

At one end of the boxcar a small, stencilled square of writing: "If you want to achieve greatness, stop asking for permission."  This beautiful mural, signed by the Kups in 2014 is one of several of Kris Kupskay's(aka: Kups) beautiful murals that make, or made Whistler Train Wreck an amazing place to visit.  Located on a particularly beautiful stretch of Cheakamus River, the Whistler Train Wreck is a collection of seven boxcars that were craned into the forest here after derailing 72 years ago.  Desperate to get the train tracks cleared after the boxcars jumped the rails and wedged in the rock cut nearby, a local logging company brought in a 35 tonne crane and yanked them into the forest.  The boxcars lay in the forest here as junk for decades until they were brought to life by local artists that turned the train wrecks into beautiful works of art.  Unfortunately, like many other of the wonderful Whistler Train Wreck murals, this one is long gone.  Covered over by the almost continuous additions to this wild and beautiful place.
