    Still no link to a story in the news? IF it happened there is a story somewhere, so where is it?

    Whatever information has come out is from the Facebook page dedicated to his memory now. Sounds like most of it is from family and friends at this point. Since it didn't interrupt train service, I doubt the news will carry the story.

    I'm beside myself over this. It happened SO close to where I live...I wanted to meet him and maybe even ride with him one day. Does anyone know exactly WHERE it happened? I'd like to make a little memorial if possible. I can't believe it...T_T

    Fuck me, dude. He was my absolute favorite. My respect for him was above and beyond. His piano arrangments were always fucking awesome as well.

    Rest In Peace Stobe. You will be missed.

    I just learned of him when he signed up here this summer. I took the bait and watched his videos - he had a uniquely personal take on whatever caught his attention; I enjoyed his stuff enough to throw some $ his way on patreon. After binge-watching most of it, I was waiting for a buildup of more material. He had pretty good insight into vagabondage, human foibles, etc. I’m stunned and saddened. He put it out there for what it was worth and ultimately wrote his own cautionary tale, bless his heart.

    I don't know if this is accurate, but a Youtube video says Curtis Bay CSX yard in Maryland.

    You should be able to go online and order it. But it's out there when you're ready.

    Is hard to lose a fellow road brother. You can never be too safe on the rails, and even then, the westbound still might pull up to snatch you to the next division. Be careful out there everybody.

    I just checked this site out. bad ass idea, but expensive. I have some screen printing friends ( I make and sell tie dye clothes) I can most likely get this price reduced to $15.00 before shipping and you will be supporting a non inc. company. I'm going to make a call and re-poste.

    Story is he got caught on a trestle in Baltimore and the Amtrak came in hot. He got off the tracks and squeezed himself as far as he could but his pack somehow got snagged by the train and pulled him in with it. Service was not interruted because they didn' find him until the next morning. His folks are having a private service for close friends and family in a few days but they are planning a large celebration of life in January for fellow riders, pals, and fans of his video adventures.

    Celebrate his life. Tough way to go. All the best to Stobe and those who knew/cared for him.

    Peace.
