Modelling a railings with curves?

Hi everybody,
I am working on a house and now I want to add some stairs with railings. I setted up some stairs and now I want to add railings. For the main rail I used a curve, now I want to add another part of the railing under the first one.
I copied the curve two times and now i want to join the two to create typical segments. Hard to discribe, look here:

Does anyone has an idea how to do this effectively? Beyond converting everything to a mesh and do it manually, I have no idea…:frowning:

Thanks for your help!

Not really a lot to go on in your image. But if I were doing a railing on some stairs, I would probably build a single section and use an array.

Frame duplication

That looks interesting, I will try it out!

Thanks for your help, exactly what I was looking for!
