Hello mr6gswke.  Welcome to the Community!

Typically a standard railing height runs 36 to 42 inches, with the newel posts 10 inches higher.
However, all bets are off until you talk to your local building inspector, as local codes vary.

Hey mr6gswke,

The level landings in my area have newels consistently two-inches taller than the handrail.

I would follow Chris' suggestion and check local codes ... just to make sure.
