Default Wood hardener/sash windows

I made these sashes and the box frames over 20 years ago, and they have
been very sadly neglected. Having purchased a nice selection of
Mighton's draughtproofing products, I have been removing the sashes to
apply them.

This is what the top meeting rail and bottom rail look like:

On another window, I did a proper job and replaced the rotten rails, but
this one I'm hoping to bodge.

Am I expecting too much of wood hardener/filler?

Likely, yes. If you've chosen a wood which rots easily - like most you'll
find today - any filler, no matter what, won't last that long.
