Goofs
When Harry is in the signal box to stop the robber's train he pulls a lever back toward him and we then see the signal drop to danger. After the girls have uncoupled the wagon, he pushes the lever forward again and the signal returns to clear. These actions are the wrong way round. Signal levers are pulled back to raise the signal to clear, pushed forward again to return to danger.

Flash Harry's surname is said to be Hackett. However, in both Blue Murder at St. Trinian's and The Pure Hell of St. Trinian's, it was given as Edwards.
