From The Hythe Pier Heritage Association -

This year’s Rock the Pier music festival will be retitled Rock the Train and will be staged on Saturday July 23rd as a part of a Centenary Celebration marking 100 years of the train operating on Hythe Pier.

The Guinness Book of Records lists the train as the world’s “oldest operating pier train”, having been running to and from the Hythe ferry boats at the end of the pier since late July 1922.
