Replacing Mid 70's Sierra light switches
 
2 Attachment(s)

I've read some of the other posts on the early style push button switches but mine are more a momentary toggle style I believe.

From what I can tell by the clicking noise in the ceiling, this is a relay system. The name on the switch bracket is "Sierra" and the back of the switch has the following "Cat Nº 1091" "3A 24V".

There are two sets of 3 switches. One set controls a single ceiling track light fixture and the other set controls two single bulb ceiling fixtures.

I've replaced the rest of the regular style toggle switches with "Decora" Leviton switches. As much as I like these switches I want to change these out to somewhat match the new white ones.

2 questions
What are my replacement options, if any?
I was also thinking about replacing the fixtures with recessed cans, will that work?

Thanks for the help.
Scott
