Railing subjected to MN winter every year. Has to last, so therefor made from old growth reclaimed pine, redwood, column boxes are made to breath. Railing is capped with galvanized metal and all is painted with an encapsulent paint.

No, Actually its a coating made to seal up lead paint on older homes. Its supposed to have a life span of 5o years with a certain thickness applied in layers. The stuff does not drip, (even if you spray one spot with a sprayer for a few seconds, which is the recommended way of applying it) and it dries to something like hard rubber. So this railing has a very thick coating over it. I built it 7 or 8 years ago, and so far, so good. By the way, one must first apply a special primer, that goes on and will stay tacky which then must be top coated with the encapsulent.
