Sadly on Monday Tony Holloway (Cardiff55) passed away very suddenly.

He was a very good friend who I chatted to at every home Cardiff gam and traded with Tony on numerous occasions.

A very knowledgeable collector who will be very sadly be missed

RIP Tony

Terribly sad news

I was speaking with Tony only last week as he was hoping to make a trip up to Scotland for the Forth Valley Fair at the end of the month.

An absolute gent.

Thoughts with his family and friends at this awful time

I can't believe this terrible news. I went to his house quite a few times, just outside of Pontypridd, to collect programmes from him. Really decent and knowledgeable person, real sad loss.

Thoughts go out to his family and friends.

RIP Tony

Had agreed to bring 3 programmes for him to the Bristol fair.

Lovely, genuine man who will be a massive loss to our hobby.

RIP Tony[/u]

Awful news, God Bless you Tony, I'll miss our chats about South Wales & model railways.

The hobby has lost a genuinely lovely man.
