  • Lisa Lewis

    Community Safety Manager, Network Rail

    My name is Lisa Lewis, I am a Community Safety Manager on North West and Central Region and have worked at Network Rail for 13 years.  My role is to ensure communities understand the real life dangers when on or near the railway.  I spend a lot of time speaking with children and young adults in schools, youth centres and pupil referral units about rail safety.  I also speak with children who have been injured on or around the railway alongside their families and seeing first hand the devastation that can be caused from trespassing makes events like Rail Safety Live even more important to ensure people know the dangers and can help us spread the message.  I work closely with the British Transport Police and Train Operating Companies to ensure a joined up approach to always putting our passengers first and to ensure everyone travelling on or near the railway stays safe at all times.

  • Lee Sheehy

    Local Operations Manager, Network Rail

    My name is Lee Sheehy, I am 31 years old and I have been working for Network Rail for 12 years. That 12 years has been spent entirely in Operations and in some sort of Signalling role. I started off as a Signaller in a small single manned signal box with a lever frame just like something from the olden days in Henley-In-Arden.

    I moved to a few more Signal boxes all with old school levers but with a little bit more traffic which meant more responsibility. I then moved into the present and landed a job which is all computer based Signalling which means you can run trains a much larger scale.

    This means more trains, more incidents and again more responsibilities.  Now I am the manager at Rugby Signalling Control Centre and myself and my team control train movements on the West Coast Mainline from Watford all the way up Rugeley. As a Signaller it is our job to ensure the safe running of trains along the network and to try and get trains to their destination on time and safely.

    At the forefront of this is safety. Safety for me is key for a railway to run efficiently, and a big part of that is ensuring that people that live and use are railway are educated on railway safety.
