To create the "Glass", use a "model In-Place" Family with a "Solid Sweep",  you can create the Rail with the rail tool.

Very nice troy, I have designed those structurally, although the curved glass will be spendy. You might think of using lexan or something like that for the glazing. I think it will be much cheaper to roll.

This stairs was anaylised using finite element technique.

For some reason the above post would not accept the JPG. Maybe this file is small enough to go.
