I am assuming you mean 58" long, 3 sections - because 58" high is awful high for a railing.

Store-bought, if you can fit into space you need to, commonly $10-20/LF plus half to that much again for installation depending on whether bolting into wood or having to connect to concrete / brick / stone. Though prefab railings come in even foot lengths - so 60" would be the prefab length for your purposes if 58" wide - though perhaps some trim pieces or such could be removed to free up the extra space.

Fancier and custom-length sections and chrome or copper-coated aluminum more commonly $25-40/LF, plus again $10-20/LF installation. And can get up to $50-100/LF for fully custom designed railing or aluminum railing with glass insert panels.

Because you are talking two trips - one to exact measure, one to get railings (from store or when manufactured) and bring them for installation, minimum labor charge is likely around $100-150 if using a Handyman, or $$200 plus or minus if using a Deck and Porch or Concrete contractor to provide and install them.
