Dear Readers,

Rail enthusiasts looking for love should head to Japan. On 20 June single people on the hunt for that special marriageable someone take to the rails on a reserved train on East Japan Railway's (JR East) Koumi Line.

The Koumi Line - popular for its views of the Yatsugatake Mountains in central Japan - will host singles in the 25-40 age bracket on JR East's most advanced rail car, a hybrid that runs on a mix of electric and battery power. The train will go from Kobuchizawa Station in Yamanashi Prefecture to Komoro Station in Nagano Prefecture and back again; a trip of about four and a half hours. The singles will be treated to train-themed talks and train quizzes along the way. Certainly sounds better than speed dating!

Whether you are looking to work in a vibrant city or in the stunning outback, Jobs of the Week have a vacancy for you!

In Mumbai, India, our client is responsible for the Engineering and Project Management Consultancy for the first metro system and is seeking a Project Director to join their team; we have opportunities for Project Managers (Track and Civil) to work on a project in Beijing, China; and in the Pilbara in Western Australia, we are looking for a Rolling Stock Engineer to be responsible for the provision of specialised rolling stock maintenance and engineering.
