Hand Rail Stanchions... A Suitable Candidate for 3D printing?

I thought they were available for the 6-18056 Vandy Tender... but, they are not (wrong again)!

Here's the thread... with a couple of photos

How many broken O-Gauge Stanchions are there in the world????

I have thought about this, as I really need some Fairbanks Morse stanchions and they just dont exist.  My thought would be to have them printed then cast in brass, like Shapeways can do. Or use the print to make a mold. If they were short and squat like the ones in the link above, I think you could probably do them in resin. But a diesel handrail.... I just think its going to be so thin it wouldnt survive long.
