Looking good Ed.

This place sells stanchions, they also sell handrail sets. But I don't think there is a set that you are looking for. Take a look.

On the handrail stanchions link they have brass wire.
But you probably have brass wire?

Edit,
This place lists GP 20 handrail set, though no pictures.
Has stanchions too.

I have a circuit board that I had removed from a DCC Bachmann and replaced it with a Digitrax decoder. So I removed the old decoder from the circuit board and soldered the Digitrax DH 126 decoder to it and soldered the truck and motor wires to it. The decoder is taped to the underside of the board and clears the flywheel by 1/16 inch. The two LED's work but need to be extended after I make some plastic lens for the front and rear lights along with some number boards. The shell fits on the frame and clear of all wires and electronics.

Looks like this will be a keeper, Ed

Not sure, this is my first brass engine. I thought about media blasting it and clear coat. Or maybe paint it as a switcher for Kaiser Steel Corporation. They had a mine in eagle mountain Calif. And a steel mill in Fontana Calif.

soda will give more of a shine under clear coat, but fine sand will help paint to adhere better ...

Are you talking about baking soda?

yes, baking soda, or just plain soda ... a much finer medium ran at a fairly low pressure, 20 - 30 psi or so ... good for cleaning up [and lightly etching] brass for clear coat [or paint] ..
