[Strawbale]insulation against train vibrations
steets at planet...

We would like to build a strawbale house and have found a nice site.
The problem is that it is close (20 meters) to a rail track. The trains
run slowly (about 50 km/h) so strawbales should provide sufficient
However, we're worried about the sound/vibrations that could reach us
through the ground. When we listened with our ears to the ground we
could hear a low rumbling and a high whining sound.
What are our options to insulate our home from such noises? For example:
would a foundation of car tyres with rammed earth be any good?
Any suggestions and/or pointers are more than welcome.
Thank in advance!
