    In addition to the usual, long-standing "givens and druthers", I have decided that a third term is needed when planning model railroads. I call this term BWIG, pronounced "bee-wig" and it stands for "But What I got".:cool:

    Example: My wife promised me the garage - the given; I wanted to model HO - a druther - But What I Got was Z-scale in an outhouse - the bee-wig. :mrgreen:

    I feel that use of this helpful term will go a long way towards explaining what actually takes place between the planning and the actual construction of a layout.
