Characters are a unique feature that allows you to add famous or fictional people to your trips. Say you’re interested in the life of Abraham Lincoln and you wanted to plot out the course of his funeral train as it traveled back to Illinois to lay him to rest. You can create a character for “Abraham Lincoln” and add him to your trip detailing the train’s journey. Using characters will build up a library of trips associated with these character which other users can search through if they are interested in that person.
NOTE: Before you create a new character, be sure to check if one exists already by typing the name in the existing characters box.
