Hand rail is typically above the cap rail and on stanchions. Wood or metal.

But doesn't rail cap make more sense? Pretty much all the shipwrights I worked with over the years felt rail cap made more sense. Agree on the handrail thing, and that is what I had said. However going off the rails here so to speak on nomenclature, my fault.
