Standing in nervous circles, clutching plastic cups and looking potential partners up and down, the party-goers listen as the Deutsche Bahn moderator runs through the evening's rules.
For Cupid's arrow to strike on the Flirt-Express, it has to be love at first sight.
Not put off by the bad luck omens, 60 German singles gathered on Friday the 13th on platform 13 in Berlin's Potsdamer Platz station for a Valentine's Eve speed-dating party with a difference, AFP's Richard Carter reports.
Waiting for them on the platform - red hearts daubed on the windows and red, heart-shaped balloons strewn throughout - Berlin's famous "panorama train," transformed for the night into the "Flirt-Express," the venue for Germany's unusual speed-dating party on the rails.

Unfortunately, the love bug did not strike everyone.
"I don't really want to talk about it," said one man sitting glumly on his own nursing a beer.
