Harold is a helicopter used for patrolling the Island.

Bio

When Harold first met Percy, he stated that railways were "slow and out-of-date", but was proven wrong when Percy beat him in a race. When Thomas' brakes failed while boarding at a station, with an inspector Harold chased him down the line. Christmas that year Harold brought Santa Claus to the party at Tidmouth Station. Harold also dropped hot drinks for Percy's crew when they were stranded in a floating river and made friends with Duck after rescuing an injured sailor.

Harold lives at Toryreck airfield (Dryaw in the television series) by Thomas' Branch Line. He keeps a watchful eye over Sodor in case of trouble and speeds to the rescue of anyone in distress.

Persona

Harold speaks in a manner reminiscent of an RAF pilot, using terms such as "wizard" and "old chap" in conversation.

Harold somewhat tends to be full of himself as he feels that "railways are slow", but he always gets his comeuppance in the end.

Basis

Harold is based on a Sikorsky S-55 helicopter, built in the UK as the Westland Whirlwind. He has added floats.

Livery

Harold is painted white with red lining.

"I think railways are slow. They're not much use and quite out of date."

- A conversation between Percy and Harold in Percy and Harold

"Good morning! I always said railways where out of date, but you're so slow with the post, you should give everyone their stamps back post-haste!"
"Bird-brain."

- A conversation between Harold and a behind-schedule Percy in Thomas, Percy and the Mail Train
