A co-worker who lived next to the main in the next town over claimed that the vibrations from passing trains would cause the occasional picture to fall off the wall in his house, but I have no idea if that was B.S. or not.No, not B.S.... It is very possible to experience earth tremors in the proximity of a passing train. Some places the soil or underground rock formation propagates the initial vibration resulting in shaky walls and pictures popping off.

You won't find construction or operations even remotely comparable between American plants and Ukrainian/Russian plants. Back to the topic.
