Elijah's drawing has two hidden treasures...
Elijah was a Canadian-born inventor and engineer. He holds 57 U.S. patents, most having to do with the railway. Elijah worked for the Michigan Central Railroad. In 1872, McCoy invented a device for the moving parts of steam trains, colloquially known as the "oil-drip cup." His device was quickly adopted by the railroads.
Trucks and trains can be used to transport freight. Understanding how freight trucks and trains impact air quality is useful to learn ways to reduce pollution.
