She left the briefcase on the floor and went back and dragged the stool out from behind the booking table. She positioned it outside Reacher’s cage and climbed up on it, and got comfortable, with her knees pressed tight together, and the heels of her shoes hooked over the rail. Like a regular client meeting, one person either side of a desk or a table, except there was no desk or table. Just a wall of thick steel bars, closely spaced.

Context: Reacher was arrested and held in a prison cell in the local police station. A defender lawyer arrived for the initial interview.

The bolded 'rail' refers the foot rail of the stool, right?

Thank you.
