Meet the Team

Andy McKenna

Andy is a Trainer/Assessor for most of the sentinel railway competencies. He has a teaching background with colleges, but his career with railways comes from his passion for steam trains and heritage railways. He regularly drives steam trains so his knowledge of railways is two sided.



Sheila McKenna

Sheila has been a trainer for over 20 years when she started working with adults and children who had additional specific educational needs. Training people with additional training needs has been of special interest of hers as she worked in the Deaf community for 12 years. She has had an interest in the railway for many years and has visited many railway sites through her involvement as a steam support crew member and has volunteered her services with many steam locomotives over the years and was the fund raising officer for A4 locomotive Sir Nigel Gresley for some time which is currently based on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, where she is a qualified fireman. Sheila also volunteers in her local community visiting people with dementia helping them re-visit life experiences.
