460 061 enjoys a short pause in Horní Lideč as it awaits to be overtaken by a Slovakia-bound EuroCity train. An interesting feature of smaller Czech junctions that is now fading into oblivion is small boards showing the direction of the train placed directly on the platforms.
Vlárský průsmyk has this unique feeling of being located in a very remote spot. The formal border with Slovakia is in proximity of the station, however since both countries joined the Schengen Area in December 2007, all the border infrastructure is now defunct. There is only a handful of dwellings nearby, however, typically for Czechia, there’s also an inn.
