Pieces of a failed project to create high speed rail in the area, will be auctioned off Tuesday.

About a dozen years ago, former Governor George Pataki committed roughly $70 million to rehab seven Turboliners at Super Steel in Schenectady

The hope was to create a high speed rail between Albany and Manhattan, but the project died.

The parts will be auctioned off at the Rotterdam Industrial Park.

On Thursday, some of the actual cars will be auctioned off in Scotia.

About $65,000 in other parts have already been sold on EBay.
