Riders see their Departed on Boston’s Red Line trains. As word spreads about the ghostly visitations, seekers crowd the Red Line, disrupting transit service. The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority hires consultant Harry West to investigate. When Harry discovers the source of the visitations, the MBTA acts to put an end to them. Harry’s ex-wife Alexandra has a brilliant idea: Replicate in “Visitation Rooms” the ghost-welcoming attributes of Red Line train cars so people can continue to meet their loved ones. But the Archbishop of Boston condemns Visitation Rooms as sacrilegious and pushes to get them banned. And a notorious gangster frets that his victims might reappear in the Visitation Rooms, pointing accusatory fingers. He warns Harry and Alexandra: Drop the Visitation Room project, or else.
