Rails & Ties is like one bad TV movie that slammed into another.

While it features three strong performance and the debut of a promising filmmaker, the story line is obvious and rather melodramatic.
A heartfelt but dramatically flat portrait of a couple grappling with one tragedy whose lives are profoundly affected by the outcome of another.
All the astute acting in the world can’t bring such a preposterous story into the station on time and intact.
Everything looks professional if undistinguished.
I found the opening third tremendously intriguing and involving, I thought the emotions were so real they could be touched, but then the film lost its way and fell into the clutches of sentimental melodrama.
