I need to know if anyone has had a surface mount assembly line in a building within 25 feet from train tracks? If so, any problems with the vibration as a train passes?

Are you concerned with physical vibration or electronic interference? If you can see your morning coffee have "rings", screen printers may suffer. Trains are a monsterous source of electrical "noise", just by thier engine (electric and diesel) not to mention whatever they use now for communication. I recommend plotting train presence with machine performance. I've seen everything from sunlight to walkie-talkies causing problems.

I am mainly concerned with physical vibration. Will machine to machine alignment be affected.

I worked for a company where the machines were put on high durometer vibration dampeners.

Ok ok, the machines were put on hockey pucks.
