Railing to column connection

What is the best way to join wood railings to wood columns? Not sure how they did it originally, toe nail I imagine.

what is your project ?
are you wanting to remove, add, modify or replace some of the railings ?
or - building a new set ?
the simple ones I have done (before the strict codes) was to use long
stainless steel screws "toe-nailed" style then caulked the joints.

there is no educational alternative to having a front row seat in the School of Hard Knocks.

Replacing the wood columns, trying to keep at much of the railing as I can. There are no codes on decorative railings 16" above grade, its pure eye candy. Wasn't sure if fancy woodworkers use some type of hidden dowel pin to lock it in to the column.

since you are replacing the columns, I am assuming you are not
going to try to salvage them for reuse ??
if that is the case, I would cut the columns just above the rail
with a chainsaw or recip saw so you can see inside and go from there.
[let us know what you find - and your resolution].
good luck in your project and work safe !!
