Atmospheres affect our perception of and conduct in space. In this chapter, through an auto-ethnographic investigation of the mundane mobile situation of a small-town train station, we show how volatile and fluid networks of travelers, materialities, sounds, and the arriving train produce forceful affective reverberations that stage embodied mobile practices. Hence, we propose that designers of physical environments, such as a train station, should pay particular attention to the affective performance of artifacts and materialities in practicing mobilities design
