Like in anything else it means being forced in a direction. It isn't an official legal term.

It means you've set up everything to go down a single track to make a person appear guilty or take the fall for a crime and not be able to get out of it. So that person gets charged with a crime and has had evidence and testimony placed against them and only them to make it seem they did the crime. A 'kangaroo court' is when everyone goes through the motions of a trial, but the outcome has already been decided beforehand. So the trial is actually a fake and simply put on for show. The two are not the same. When you've been railroaded you've been set up to take the fall for the crime. Yet there is still a chance you might get off because your trial isn't rigged. But in a kangaroo court, then your fate has been decided before the trial even begins, so you will be found guilty and sentenced no matter what.
