Train Traffic Vibrations to House
Your house will experience potential ills much more quickly from the vibrations but I doubt that the vibrations will cause settling. Most long term problems from house settling occur from poor or inadequate surface water drainage. You must maintain good grading and sloping of the soil away from your house to avoid these water runoff problems.
If the foundation is weak, the vibrations could cause flaws (like cracking) sooner. Think of this vibration as a daily, minor earthquake test. Be vigilant. Your house is on a faster “feedback” time table than those without vibrations. Potential flaws will just occur sooner.
