Terminal Records

Once you have created Building records, you can then add terminal into each building. When you create a terminal, you designate it to either hold binding posts or frame locations but it cannot be both. In order for a terminal to hold frame locations, you must first create the frame; see Frame Records to learn more about adding frames to a building.
