Without pic's or measurements no one can say, they vary a lot. You may be able to find the metal rails at a second hand furniture store. Salvation Army's will hang onto them in case they need a particular rail. Take the foot along to check as there are a few types and you must get the right one. Good luck on the finials, I bought a set at an auction last year, just in case. They are brass and need some TLC, I don't know if they would fit right or if the brass would look right, but if you can find the pipe size I will send you a picture via e-mail. The finials are rare, if all else fails you could have them turned from wood and seal, sand fine, and paint to match. Just use a tight grain wood like Maple so the growth rings don't show.
