Building a Control Panel Question

I'd like to build a Control Panel for my train set. Can anyone recommend the type of material I should use for the panel that will have microswitches and LEDs attached?

Thanks.

Panama, I did ping you, but do post any technical questions. You will get many more answers and chances are the question will be of significance to some other modeler who will be happy to read answers as well.
