Switch Stands and Ballast color

Chris Jessee

Does anyone know what type & size of switch stands were used on the ET?  
Any suggestions for sources for HO scale switch stands?  I plan on using PECO switches with no motors and just hand flip them as most switches will be accessible. 

What color and coarseness of ballast would be appropriate for the ET? 
Any suggestions of manufacturer that makes a good match?

Thank you, 
Chris Jessee
