SCOTIA, N.Y. -- We have all heard the saying "one man's trash is another man's treasure." That was especially true in Scotia, where train cars and parts were auctioned off.

NH Kelman Incorporated, a scrap recycling business in Cohoes, bought eight engines for $16,000 each. They buy metal from people and businesses, and they separate and ship it out to mills to be melted and reused.

"For the recyclable material. Simply put. This is not rocket science. You buy the weight, you sell by the weight. The train sold at a value that was worth recycling," said Jason Kelman, NH Kelman Inc.

NH Kelman Incorporated has been in Cohoes since 1904. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
