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 !!
