sooo here is the thing about LPS gear, the lamps and ballasts are very expensive. An LPS ballast can go for $120 and a lamp for $50.
 ballasts are very hard to find. But there is a solution! you can run an 18-watt SOX lamp on a fulham Workhorse 2 ballast. here are the links for the lamp and ballast/ https://www.ebay.com/itm/122010971693     ...  https://www.amazon.com/Philips-234047-18-watt-SOX-E18-Pressure/dp/B004NIRVXO/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=18+watt+low+pressure+sodium+lamp&qid=1620218196&sr=8-3 .... 18-watt SOX lamps are the most common so that is the lamp I suggest. oh! and you will also need a lamp-holder! https://www.ebay.com/itm/164291899534  ....   To wire the ballast connect the 2 red wires to 1 wire of the lamp-holder, and then connect the yellow wire to another wire of the lamp-holder. If you have any questions PM me!

Answered via PM because the last time I posted something here it got snapped up immediately.

I believe 35&55w lamps can be operated by tying together three outputs of a normal ballast factor T8 instant start ballast.

Hey, sorry if I am replying late, but thank you for the link to some. Also, do you mean instant start electronic T8 ballasts?
