In 1872, McCoy developed an automatic lubricator that spread oil evenly over a train’s engine while it was still moving. The invention allowed trains to run for long periods of time without stopping, which saved both time and money. McCoy was a prolific inventor, securing dozens of patents in his lifetime.
Did You Know? As his invention grew in popularity, inferior copycats emerged. Railway engineers requested “the real McCoy.” The popular expression, meaning “the real thing,” is still used today.
