The Grand Opening

Harold and the Flying Horse is the twentieth episode of the seventh season.


The Vicar is holding a fête and Harold is disappointed when he has to continue with safety patrol. However, he gets his chance to be useful when Pegasus, the carthorse, gets stuck in a ditch and has to be saved. Harold is then hailed as a hero at the fete afterwards.





  • When Thomas leaves the station, a white blotch (presumably a film glitch) is visible in the centre-right.
  • In the US narration, the event is referred to as a garden party, but the sign still says fete.
  • When Percy arrives at Maithwaite, Toby and Henrietta pass by, but in the next scene, they are no where to be seen.
  • In a deleted scene, Henry is on Thomas' Branch Line.
  • When Harold leaves the party, it is daytime. However, because stock footage is used, in the next shot it is sundown.
