Another tram not originally intended to travel to Blackpool for the 125th anniversary was Blackpool & Fleetwood Rack 2 but following the problems with transporting double deckers from Crich it was offered as a substitute and thus made its way home for the first time since 1998.
As with its 1998 loan 2 was only available for use on a limited basis and arrived in Blackpool on 2nd September 2010. After commissioning it was first used during a tour on 11th September but after this its problems started and made it a serious cause for concern as being able to take part in the anniversary events. On 22nd September it was out for a training run when it failed but after repairs at Rigby Road it was declared fit to run on a tour on 25th September but failed again. It did manage to see use successfully on a couple of other occasions including the anniversary parade and eventually returned to Crich on 4th October 2010.
