Comic Story (3 pages) George Westinghouse
Featuring: Heroes of Science
Synopsis: The story of George Westinghouse, the inventor of air brakes for trains. Before his invention, there were many train accidents, due to the fact that the brakeman had to rush from car to car and set the brakes by hand. It took a long time to stop a train in those days. Nobody wanted to pay to test Westinghouse's brakes until Andrew Carnegie agreed. On the very first trial run in 1869, the train was to make several test stops along the way, but had to be put to a full test when a man was thrown onto the tracks by a horse. The train stopped in time and saved the man's life.
