If you're going to have your track on the ground, you might want to look at the ten mille ground throws, as they don't stand up above the track.  I got mine from Dave Goodson.

Alternatively, you can build your own for not much money at all.  The key here is to make sure you use sturdy components!   While there's lots of different designs out there, I designed mine so I wouldn't have to bend any of the brass frame.   You will have to solder, so it might be handy to have a small torch or a big soldering gun.   There's really not much too these:

And they build into a nice sturdy stand.  I know I've tripped over mine several times, and I've just had to bend back the mast.

There's a few more details on my web site.  There's an article on how to build them in June 2007 Garden Railways.
